Last week I got to spend a few days with two awesome girls. Their parents made a business trip into a mini-vacation, so I got to be the "Substitute Mom" while they were gone. Basically, I took them to and from school, made sure they got their chores & homework done, then we'd always have a little fun afterwards.
All you need for a little fun is crepe paper in the color of your choice (ours was black) + some wooden craft dowels. Tape together for a session of ribbon dancing and cute pictures.
The girls looked like pro gymnasts with the ribbons, definitely gold-medal worthy :)
