The weather suddenly dropped almost twenty degrees today, so instead of playing in the dirt outside I was able to convince the boys to do a little silly painting with me. We used straws - it was a hit!
|having a little blowing contest - big buddy won|
|watered-down paint (1 part water to 2 parts paint),|
eye droppers, straws, paper
Step 1: use eye droppers to create blobs of paint on the paper
Step 2: aim straws at paint and blow
It kept them happily busy for over a half an hour. There were, of course, some causalities...
|lucky for me our wood floor isn't too precious|
|i thought we were past this but mini man couldn't|
resist tasting the paint today - my "please don't
eat the paint" was heart crushing :)
