This March marks the second year of the the two week spring break for my girls. While they are super excited to have this much time off of school I have been dreading it a little bit. Not the spending time with my girls part but definately the keeping them busy part. With only three weeks to go until my official due date the pace I keep during the day is quite a bit slower with just Glory at home. I’m not goning to lie, I miss my naps.
So here we are at the halfway mark and in an effort to occupy the girls I have dipped into my wealth of ECE resourses and found some great activities to do with and for the girls. Todays activity is sidewalk paint. Super easy and a total hit with the kids. They measure, mix and use this almost by themselves and will spend literally hours outside painting and repainting the driveway. It also has a realy nice consistancy so the colors are bright and vibriant when they are applied the to pavement.
So here’s the recipe:
1 part Cornstarch
1 part Water
Mix until smooth and you have a super easy activity that will keep the little ones (and not so little ones) busy. Because the cornstarch can be a bit difficult to stir at first you might need to help stir it, and if you are anything like me you will DEFINATELY want to
take full control help with adding the food coloring.
I will hopefully be back tomorrow with another activity. Or maybe I will have a nap. We’ll see what happens.
