Have you been to Frugal Family Fun Blog? Love it. Need to add it to my sidebar, along with lots of other updates on my site...
I saw this post and knew my boys would love it. And love it they did! Who knew a bunch of colored water and stuff around the house could provide such a wonderful dramatic play environment?
Sucking up water with medicine droppers.
Spilling and splashing.
Playing with color on cotton balls.
Studying the color combinations.
In the end, they finished with a big brown-hued bottle of water, which they tried to get each other to drink. Gross.
This kept them happy for over an hour. I would have let them stay out longer, but it's just too hot here (even in the morning). This is one activity I'm sure will get lots of repeat requests.
