Welcome back to Tips & Tricks Thursday! This little corner of the blog is devoted to those simple ideas that make life better or easier in some way. :)
The Tip: Bubble Wrap Dance Party!
In the middle of winter, Kiddo and I were bored. It was so cold, and the bad weather never seemed to end! I had a small piece of bubble wrap, so I laid it on the floor, turned on some happy music, and we cut a rug!
|Does anyone else forget to snap a onesie and just not bother to fix it? :)|
Why I love it:
There's just something so inherently fun about Bubble Wrap. I haven't met a kid or adult who doesn't love it! Kiddo had a blast dancing and got some of his abundant energy out. This is perfect for a day when it's rainy or too cold to go outside.
