Homework Time

I have been trying to institute a set time everyday for homework time. No, no one has homework yet, but they will and I don't want the girls to do like I did. I would always wait to do my homework until right before bedtime. I didn't sleep much in high school. Mostly we do crafts, because that's what the girls are into right now. This is one of my favorite websites for crafts. I'm sure there are other better sites, but right now I like that one because the crafts are easy and I usually have everything on hand to make them. It's been really fun and a good time to spend together. So what are my chances that they will have better study habits than I did?
Sometimes all we do is stamp. The girls love it and I don't mind because all my stamps are very kid-friendly (ie not very nice!)

I thought Avery's face was funnier than anything else. She did stamp on this piece of paper, I promise.

This day we killed two birds with one stone, homework time and snack time. This is Ashby's ants on a log. It's a banana with peanut butter, nuts and chocolate on top.

Avery couldn't take her eyes off her ants on a log. I didn't have chocolate chips, so we used peanut butter cups. It was almost too much for her to wait while I took a picture.

How fun. I had crappy homework habits too (and not just in high school) so I hope to help my kids learn to learn well. The ants on a log look great! Did the girls actually eat the celery? I think Naomi would probably lick all the stuff off and leave the veggie.

I love that look of anticipation from Avery. . .

What a cute mom! Craft time looks so fun. I love how you are so on the ball with getting good homework habits established early. Believe me, (coming from a retired teacher's point of view) their future teachers will appreciate it!

I can't believe how big your girls look! Too cute! Craft time is always fun, unfortunately Noah isn't too into it yet hopefully soon I usually end up making the crafts myself :0)
