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

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

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

Favor Tin Magnet Exploration

I made a fun magnet game that is perfect for preschoolers. I put items that were both magnetic and non-magnetic in different tins. The tins themselves are not magnetic so they do not interfere with the items inside.
My kids love this game. Kaia made her own rules so items that are not magnetic go face down and items that are stay face up.
I love that you can see inside and the magnetic wand shows the movement of magnetic items within. Some people use muffin tins to store this game but I found that it interfered to much so I prefer a bin or basket to house this game instead.
You can find these tins in the wedding favor aisle at Michael's Craft Store make sure to save the Sunday coupon.

Here is a list of items I put in the tins:
embroidery floss
Dice
colorful paperclips
iron nuggets
pencil grip
fiber fill (stuffing)
metal washers
easter grass
plastic stones
shells
metal balls
metal clips
foam pieces
magnetic barbel
metal keychain
colorful metal ball
glass stone
metal wall clip
metal nuts
colorful metal chips
metal butterfly clip
jingle bells
counting bear
metal screw

I hot glued each container shut. It was not easy you have to work quickly and be careful there is not much room for glue.
