I wanted to show you the finished version of the fun box Maia and I have been working on. After Maia pasted the pictures on the shoe box, I covered the whole thing with Mod Podge to help it last a bit longer and also used some colored construction paper to finish the ragged edge of the hole in the top.
Then we sat down together and came up with activities to include in the box — mostly the ones I already mentioned at the end of my 31 Activities post, but she did add a couple of her own, including "make gingerbread men cookies." I thought about just including spring-y activities, such as make a spring nature table (which I want to do soon!), pick a bouquet of spring flowers, plant a little garden pot/plot, make a paper mache egg, dye Easter eggs, etc., but in the end decided to stick to my original idea of having a box of quick and easy activities that I know Maia likes, especially since I'm still working through my perhaps overly ambitious list of 31 activities. However, I really like the idea of having a seasonal activity box and may go with that next time.
