Mamatoga Daily: Thursday, Dec. 28th

Well, the snowshoe class that was scheduled for tomorrow is canceled due to lack of snow, but there are still some fun activities lined up for tomorrow to keep your little one busy! Today at Mamatoga I added a new post to the School Break Survival Guide, a bunch of my favorite crafts found on Pinterest! Check it out and find out how to make your little one their very own jet pack or some very cool melted crayon art! And if you're staying in on New Year's Eve with the kids, check out the Mamatoga How-to for a fun filled New Year's Eve full of ideas from recipes to crafts to local family friendly activities! Don't forget about the new Winter Guide that has all the details on the goings on about town for the winter season from First Night to Chowderfest! I'm thinking of doing a snow dance here mamas, even though I might be known to complain when there is TOO much snow it would be nice to have a little snow, we haven't been sledding once so far and I need to get Finn out snowboarding! So tonight I'm thinking happy snow thoughts readers...
