I also let myself feel guilty for doing nothing with the kids over the past two weeks except to let them watch TV all day and play video games. Sometimes it happens - especially when people are sick - but I still tend to fret that I'm raising couch potatoes.
Today I implemented a mandatory TV/computer shut off time. We listened to Seeds family worship cds while the kids built a camping vignette out of clay, complete with moon, stars, birds, sling shots and fire roasted marshmallows. It's really pretty incredible.
These are their "guys" that are sitting around the campfire. Top; Elijah (who is blowing a bubblegum bubble, fyi) and bottom; Emet.
They also played in a box.
And now I feel better. My children have not forgotten how to play or use their imaginations these past two weeks.
