More snow here. Awesome. Not enough for snow shoes or ice skates or sledding. Too much to go to the park or play in the garden. It's April... go away snow!

Which leaves me finding more crafty indoor activities for the kids. This one is easy. Take an egg carton, pip cleaners, paint and a 2 inch tall photo of your child's face.

Simply cut the egg carton into worm-like segments (we used 3 parts per wormy for us). Let the kids paint (or use markers, crayons, etc.) the body of the worm/insect. While they do that, you can print out a picture 2" tall of your child's face. I sealed mine with a clear contact paper to make them a bit sturdier.

I then punched holes in the top of the head so that the girls could insert antennae. Ariana also added legs and arms to hers. We then attached their face to the front... and there you have it.
That gave us about half an hour reprieve and then... "I'm borrrred. There's nothing to dooooo." Eh, it was a good half hour.

Come onnnn sunshine.
