Sometimes it's just fun to break out of the ordinary and do something different. I convinced the kids to go down to Roma in this teeth chattering cold to find nice stones. They helped for a little while until they got engrossed in climbing the large rocks.
Once we were back home the kiddos went to play while I cleaned and dried my rocks and shells. It was fun to play around and come up with a scene. I think the kids will enjoy trying this out tomorrow.
