Well I finally got some kid-friendly scissors and some craft stuff that's exclusively for the girls. They had a blast playing with them this afternoon and I think I'll have to get them a special container to keep it all in. I was so worried about giving into scissors for fear of them cutting their hair but the scissors I found cut paper no problem but nothing else - they don't even feel sharp. I'm thinking of getting some more "big-kid" activities like this for them as Chantel seems to be fine with it now too. I was always worried about Chantel not being ready for it before but Elayna has been doing crafts at story hour for the past year and a half and loves it. I should start trying to pull out my sewing when they do this during the day since I have a tonne of projects that I'd love to finish before this baby arrives.
