Anne has a new activity kit. I hope she enjoys playing with it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Right now, she is sitting next to me coloring in the notepad and on her herself. I guess she is getting a bath tonight. It will be a great on-the-go activity kit.
The kit was created with stuff we had around the house, stuff Grandma had around her house and some from Office Max. Everybody at Office Max was extremely friendly and helpful.
I purchased a new Trapper Keeper ($16.99) to hold everything together. It has a handle so she can carry it herself and zippers so she items won't fall out.
