These sound like great sites for crafts, and will definitely keep my kids entertained :) There's another site they've been using a lot - http://www.kabillion.com/littledirector allows them to upload and create drawings, animate them, and even add music and voiceovers! Once they're done, you can get their works of art on DVD, and makes a great gift for grandma or grandpa! I work with Kabillion, and this is a great site that will not only keep your children quietly entertained for hours, but you will end up with great keepsakes (without the mess!) Check it out and let me know what your kids think :)

Thank you so much for all of the great ideas to keep the kids busy. When does school go back into session? I'm kidding. I love having the kids home. We bake and decorate cookies and they help decorate the house. Great times, great memories.

A great sanity saving thing is a book found called, "Together: Creating Family Traditions". It is loaded with all sort of great projects and crafts for not only this kids but our whole family. It's a great resource for our Friday Family Night.

The authors are: Rondi Hillstrom Davis and Janell Sewall Oakes about the authors

It's a beautiful book. Sometimes when I am rocking the kids we just look at the beautiful pictures.

Thank you for the great ideas. I will put them in my "FFN" folder.
