It’s raining and cold! Instead of feeling like this is a terrible way for summer vacation to begin, we do the things we love to save for rainy days. In this case, we invite friends to make grilled cheese sandwiches that seem so comforting as the chilly rain comes in through the screen door.
The children make little animals on the rainbow loom.
My daughter and her friend make turtles and peacocks and hibiscus! On the rainbow loom! My youngest is making a little mouse right now.
They find instructions on Youtube, and soon, I watch a parade of snakes, penguins, climbing lemurs, and octopi.
My oldest is beginning a collection of signature sushi pieces on the loom. I can’t wait to see how they turn out. What fun!
