We practiced spelling and numbers…


We made art…


We played…

I would recommend providing a clean bowl of water so they can wash off their hands in between as needed. And the bonus here is that clean up was fairly easy and left my counter nice and clean!

  1. LOL! Isn't it these times that stay the longest in our kids' and our memories. That's what it's all about – the journey, the memories!! LOOKS LIKE TONS OF FUN! I did shaving cream with Turbo and had him keep it in a cookie sheet. Sort of free, sort of contained.I want to know what Tiny Tot was getting into during this fun activity. She's the cutest!
