mom, we're bored

a lazy saturday morning.

the boys were using up their allotted wii time
and i was catching up on my favorite blogs.

i am so glad that i did.

late saturday afternoon i heard those three little words...
mom, we're bored!

and i knew exactly what to do!

i copied kasey buick

 i had read her blog saturday morning
and saw that she had painted a wall dark for her children.
and then let them draw all over it!
remember this sealskin colored wall i painted last fall?

nope, it isn't chalk board paint.

it is just a dark, flat paint.

and yes, it wipes right off with an eraser or damp cloth.

so i jumped in too,
i didn't want to miss any of the fun.

and we ended up going a wee bit crazy.
we covered most of the wall.

but it kept us busy, the boys thought it was ultra cool,
it was a fun activity for a cold day

i am now having second thoughts on repainting this wall back to cream.

thank you kasey for such a fun idea!

what do you do when your kids are bored? 
leave me a comment, i'd love to hear!
