Crafty Chloe

Chloe loves to make stuff. Out of anything. Craft supplies. Stuff she finds around the house. Trash. Stuff that doesn't belong to her - like her Dad's shirt! She is one creative girl! When she gets invited to a friend's birthday party she is determined to make something truly special. Her motivation? Jealousy! I know, not what you expected. She wants to give her friend a gift at least as good as what one of the other guests is bringing! She comes up with something perfect...in fact, it is SO perfect it erases the jealousy and makes all three girls smile. The best gifts really are the homemade kind! Author: Kelly DiPucchio

Fun on a Cold Winter Day

It's cold! I know, stating the obvious! A good day to remember this famous storybook quote:

"The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day."

It would be a good day for a visit from The Cat in the Hat to change things up and make a big fun mess!

Since The Cat in the Hat won't really stop by, here are some websites and books that might help you figure out how to have some fun together on a cold day, and later in the week, on a snowy day!
