Four playing in some instant mashed potato flakes. We practiced writing letters, then moved on to shapes.
After he was all done "writing," I filled a measuring cup with water and gave him a medicine syringe to suck the water from the cup and squirt into the flakes (giving it a new texture.)
Thanks Pinterest, we built a "marble run" out of cardboard tubes taped to the wall. I used a wrapping paper tube, and two toilet paper tubes. If you were more prepared, you could use a WHOLE lot more of them and make a more elaborate course. We used pom pom's instead of marbles. The boys liked it. The Punk is pictured here, with Three and Four.
I spent a blissful Saturday in downtown at Artsplosure sans children. I bought myself this nifty ear-cuff from one of the artist booths. I love it. I also bought a GREAT photo graph from BigWorldPhoto. I bought "making memories" which is a couple in an acorn boat. <3 br="" nbsp=""> 3>
Four making a tent.
Helping me bake banana bread and brownies. He's wearing the towel to be his "apron" so he looks like "a real chef."
