My favorite activities as of late, have included fun ways to bond with my girls.  We hosted Brigitta’s sleepover last Saturday and the favorite activity, out of many was simply making English muffin pizzas.  I was shocked!  Basically what I did was to set out all the topping stuff on the table (a mix of different shapes and sizes) and then handed over English muffins to the girls.  They had a great time putting on stuff and were very creative in their designs.  Then they munched on the leftover toppings which was a great way to get them to eat veggies!  The pizzas cooked for 5 minutes under the broiler and the girls LOVED them.  The key is to buy actual pizza sauce which comes in a plastic squeeze tube and a little Italian seasoning.  The girls got to be creative, I did not have to cook, they ate veggies, and they are done in minutes, and we laughed a lot.

Another really fun idea this past summer was to take a big roll of paper and have the girls paint different visual representations of our memory verses.  All my girls had a great time and were a complete mess!  It was a fun way to get them to talk about application of verses and my girls just plain love anything creative.
