I made a festive Christmas tree fruit platter, courtesy of Pinerest and had a few other little treats for them. Once they were done with lunch and their craft, they all wanted to go outside and play. The backyard swing became a hot commodity, so to relieve tensions in the group, we loaded them in the wagon and walked over to the neighborhood park. Of course they all still wanted the exact same swing at the park, go figure, but there was more space for them to run around. All this fun and excitement completely wore out Kennedy and she napped for a good portion of the afternoon.
Only a handful of quarrels over the (pretend) toaster and swing, no markers on my furniture, and a long nap from Kennedy. I'd call it a success.
I swear they were having fun despite their serious little faces.
