|K painting a flower. I picked up several small wooden shapes for the children to paint at Michael's, I think they were $.25 each. These shapes were stocking stuffers but would also be great for Easter hunts or baskets.|
|Sensory play with shaving cream. I think next time I will add a bit of food coloring for some color mixing fun. I can hear B's excitement now.|
|This was an idea I saw last summer on Pinterest. It is baking soda on a sheet pan then a dropper is used to drop vinegar mixed with food coloring. Fun.|
|Painting with watercolors.|
|I know it is winter around here when our stairs become cluttered with race track and cars. This track is a darda track that we have loved to death. The cars are long since broken but it is still a great create your own set with lots of options and fun. And yes that is a giant pile of cars at the bottom of the stairs, many we have bought and many more have been passed down to us from friends and family.|
|Playdough! Here you see the playdough cake set and candy shop.|
And somedays even if it is cold we go and enjoy our neighborhood school and play for awhile.
