I HAVE MOVED to my permanent Blog at Familylicious.com!!! Sorry for any confusion this might give. I will leave this site up but for any new updates, activities, and projects please check my other site Familylicious.com. Its just to hard to keep up the two sites (I actually have FOUR!) anyway. I am going to keep doing all these fun activities with my kiddos so come and check out what we are doing on Familylicious.com
Frozen Crabs Kaia decided to take the big block out of the water and add salt to see if that would make it melt faster
Experimenting with salt and warm water Frozen blocks the kids designed the day before One of the balloons hidden treasures We made all of these the day before For the balloons fill them with your treasures before adding water it worked better for us Ready to create
So it started with an innocent idea...fingerpainting The kids had extra paint on their hands so asked for more paper Lots of blue paint The they asked to do splat(fly swatter)painting. After a few splats the pie tins were to tempting and they asked to do some foot painting
More Foot painting That's whe things got a little crazy I should have known when they started to take off their clothes they were up no good But did I expect log rolls in paint? Or full body paint...no, but it was an interesting twist And they had so much fun!!!!! And they are washable and so was the paint so it was an easy clean up Log Rolls
I made a fun magnet game that is perfect for preschoolers. I put items that were both magnetic and non-magnetic in different tins. The tins themselves are not magnetic so they do not interfere with the items inside. My kids love this game. Kaia made her own rules so items that are not magnetic go face down and items that are stay face up. I love that you can see inside and the magnetic wand shows the movement of magnetic items within. Some people use muffin tins to store this game but I found that it interfered to much so I prefer a bin or basket to house this game instead. You can find these tins in the wedding favor aisle at Michael's Craft Store make sure to save the Sunday coupon.
Here is a list of items I put in the tins: embroidery floss Dice colorful paperclips iron nuggets pencil grip fiber fill (stuffing) metal washers easter grass plastic stones shells metal balls metal clips foam pieces magnetic barbel metal keychain colorful metal ball glass stone metal wall clip metal nuts colorful metal chips metal butterfly clip jingle bells counting bear metal screw
I hot glued each container shut. It was not easy you have to work quickly and be careful there is not much room for glue.
