I was extra busy babysitting grandkids last week and I'm still catching up. But I had to show you these cute little "Squinkies" that came in so handy for keeping the grandchildren quietly busy at various times.
These particular ones were Super Heroes Squinkies, perfect for my grand-boys, and I must say, the grandchildren really enjoyed them – And I enjoyed the peace and quiet that ensued as we brought them out. I had bought one set per child. Each had 12 Squinkies. But I only gave them 3 per day and we stretched out the fun for almost a week. And when I did give them out, I let them take turns picking out one Squinkie at a time, so each got plenty of ones they really wanted. A win-win for them AND me. Always nice when babysitting several grandkids at a time, don't you think?
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoy them very much and read each one. I also love the grand ideas so many of you share that help and encourage other readers. I do my best to reply to them all but value your patience when that isn\'t possible.
