It's Playtime: Easy Peasy

I'm tired.  I'm pregnant, and I'm tired.  Today we went pretend camping at the park with my son's preschool class.  We went on a nature hike, the kids played in tents, they played on the playground, we picnicked, it was nice.  Then we came home and had a play date at our house.  I made dinner, now I'm here.  Doesn't seem like a lot, but, I'm tired.  So this week on It's Playtime, in honor of those women who are pregnant and tired, with little energy to clean up paint, toys, and lego pieces, I give you 3 mindless activities that just may give you 5 minutes of rest.

What could be easier then Transferring Spoons?  Healthymama Info explains the benefits of this project.

  For the child who loves art, but you don't want all the work of planning something,  Learn with Play @ Home shared their Hole Punch Art.

 Do you have some styrofoam bowls laying around?  Putti Prapancha shared Stack, Build, Smash, and Play with Styrofoam Bowls.  This could possibly give you 1/2 hour or more of free time!
