I will leave this site up but for any new updates, activities, and projects please check my other site Familylicious.com. Its just to hard to keep up the two sites (I actually have FOUR!) anyway. I am going to keep doing all these fun activities with my kiddos so come and check out what we are doing on Familylicious.com

Glow Stick Bath Time

We decided to have a glow bath. The kids loved it Kaia especially.
We threw some glowsticks and submersible lights in the bath with some bubbles and lets the kids have fun!

Color Explosion- Shaving Cream

We did a Color Explosion Experiment earlier that you can see HERE with oil this is the same concept just with shaving cream this time
The kids enjoyed droping different colors and waiting to see them explode through the layer of shaving cream
The shaving cream in the end was its own project the kids swirled the colors around

Lipstick Kiss Painting

We had so much fun doing lipstick kiss paintings.
All you need is paper, lipstick, and a mirror
Kaia and Mikey were so excited about this. They filled paper after paper with tons of kisses which were so cute.
Kaia calls them Princess kiss pages

Sensory Table- Chemistry how Messy can it be?

I have come to realize my children are really into foot exploration- Feet in the gooChemistry: Cornstarch and water Ooblick + Shaving cream... something new and excitingThis was a very messy and very fun experiment we will DEFINITELY be repeatingPouring, stirring, sifting and just exploring the ooey gooey squishiness of it all
Pouring the goo- Ooblick and shaving cream mixture...It was fantastic
Okay so I kind of skipped a beat here. I had meant to show you picks of the kids dumping and playing with the ooblick before the addition of the shaving cream but I got a little caught up in the moment and seriously ooblick is so much fun I had to play too!
Mixing and pouring
The setup
I had cups of cornstarch and cups of plain water set out. the kids each chose which color they would like to add the the "liquid" and the the fun began they were given no instructions just spoons in the powder and droppers in the liquid. They each chose a different way to mix and explore it was pretty awesome.

Sensory Table- Iceberg Melting


Frozen Crabs
Kaia decided to take the big block out of the water and add salt to see if that would make it melt faster

Experimenting with salt and warm water

Frozen blocks the kids designed the day before

One of the balloons hidden treasures

For the balloons fill them with your treasures before adding water it worked better for us

Paint- It started Innocently...


So it started with an innocent idea...fingerpainting

The kids had extra paint on their hands so asked for more paper

Lots of blue paint

The they asked to do splat(fly swatter)painting.

After a few splats the pie tins were to tempting and they asked to do some foot painting




More Foot painting

That's whe things got a little crazy I should have known when they started to take off their clothes they were up no good

But did I expect log rolls in paint?

Or full body paint...no, but it was an interesting twist
And they had so much fun!!!!!
And they are washable and so was the paint so it was an easy clean up

Log Rolls
