DIY Tutorial Video for Rainy Day Crafts for Kids
It’s been raining here in SoCal like crazy over the past several days. I actually love it! The one thing is that stinks about however is that my kids are stuck inside most of the day. The bright side is that there are lots of creative things for them to do inside.
