Every now and then I find myself in possession of a very large piece of paper, generally brown packing paper from a giant package or some such. Rather than throw it in the recycling, I save it for a fun activity: making a floor "mural" by flattening out the paper, taping it down on the linoleum, and letting the children loose with crayons. I just make sure the crayons are of the "washable" variety, because Genevieve isn't always so good about sticking to the paper.
The girls love the novelty of making a GIANT picture--and on the floor, no less! It's like sidewalk-chalking for bad-weather days!
