Hey there Seattle,
This week we got to watch our nephew for a few hours and realized how much energy and zest for life a 5-year-old can have. Baking some gluten-free chocolate chip cookies was a great activity to take up some time, and it had a sweet reward at the end. I’m glad my 10 and 12-year old children were there to help!
Whether you’re entertaining children or just yourself this weekend, you’ll find some fun ideas here, no matter what your age!
