Just Because It’s Fun!

Summer is full of fun adventures, tasty treats and good old fashion fun!  We combined all three today right in our living room and in our backyard. After a quick trip to the store we came home and set up camp in the living room.

After showing my oldest how to set it up, he was the first to jump inside and set up to watch some t.v. with his pillow and blanket. Of, course when I think of camping I think….S’mores! So I used what we had on hand and made some indoor S’mores- yumm! Graham crackers, peanut butter, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and sprinkled graham cracker crumbs on top! Cooked them in the oven for about 5 minutes.

Later on we headed outside for some messy art! Fly swatter painting! I set up a small portable table out back and some paints and with fly swatters in hand, they began to paint.  They got as equally covered in paint as the paper did ;0)

It was so nice to have a day to enjoy doing activities instead of just swimming to keep cool.  Thank you for the break in heat today!

Bubble Mania with Recylables



I saw this neat idea on Pinterest this morning and gathered up the supplies to give it a try! So much fun! A sock, a water bottle (with bottom cut off) and a bucket of bubbles or water and dish soap.  Add some food coloring to the sock bottom itself, dip in the solution and blow!


This made some really great long and full bubbles!  We first just blew the bubbles into the air and then I asked the boys to try and make prints on paper for our art collection. It worked wonderfully! Super fun and super easy!
