Today was a hot and humid day and I was at a loss as what to do with the kids, they were inside most of the day doing crafts, colouring and stuff like that. When little Miss. A proclaims ‘I want to go outside’ ok so after that her brother jumped on the bandwagon and out they both went. Well, about 5 minutes later Mr. O says, “I want to come inside” I say “why?” He didn’t answer so I tried to quickly come up with something, so I said “what if I let you play with water?” an enthusiastic “yes”.
Ok so now Mommy has to come up with something quick and easy and fun…no problem huh??
So, I mixed in some food colouring into a few glasses of water, put some small rocks in a bin with clear water, added some scoops and let them play with the water.
They ended up pouring the water from one cup to the other. Mr. O even asked “what happens when you mix the two colours?” 😀
After that I added some bottles and funnels, left to them to see what they would do. Well I saw that my boy was measuring water, carefully adding the water until it just reached overflowing and then letting it overflow as well.
Miss A just loved the whole thing, adding water and mixing it.
After when they looked liked they were getting bored, I mixed up some coloured soap foam for them
to add into the water and to keep them playing for a bit longer 😀
Wasn’t a bad activity for a last minute idea!!
