January Fun!

Amy at Serving Pink Lemonade shares a fun way to jazz up January by filling 21 envelopes with activities that she can do with her children each weekday of the month. 
I love this idea and created a list of our own January activities.   
I color coded them into two categories: weekday and weekend activities.  I wanted easy activities that can be done in the evening and then more elaborate activities that could be done on the weekends. 
I only chose to do ten this month since I’m starting halfway through.  I wrote the ten activities on notecards and placed them in a wooden square box I found at Michael’s for $1.  (I decoupaged the wooden box with scrapbook paper).  I put a magnetic strip on the box and placed it on the side of my refrigerator.  
Now everyday we can choose an activity to do:  The green ones are for the weekend and the blue ones are for weeknights.  Most of the blue ones can be repeated so I can put them back in the box.

I’m so excited to start tonight.  I wonder what our first activity will be?  I will post pictures and directions after we work on these fun activities.

Now I can’t wait to come up with our February Activities.  Do you have some fun January or February activities to share?  Leave a comment.  I’d love to hear your ideas.
