Ice Painting

I did this activity with the kids today. G was home from school so we needed something to keep us busy. It worked. For a little while. I think the problem was it was too warm outside so the ice…

Squirt Painting

We were having a rough evening and I needed kids still and mostly quiet so I could cook dinner. Hubs had a meeting so it needed to be something easy. I had colored water left over from bubble painting so…

Bubble Art

We did this on a day that was a little too chilly and windy so it didn’t hold their attention long. But I think it would have worked better if the weather was nicer or we did it inside. Supplies…

The Library

I LOVE the library. We used to go to story time a lot when G was a baby and then something happened and we stopped going. I don’t know why… because we loved going. Anyways… we recently started going again.…
