Practicing numbers with Hopscotch

It was another hot and humid day.  Majority of the day was spent being lazy and staying indoors but when the sun started to set it cooled down a bit and we headed out on the patio to enjoy some fresh air.  My hubby has the whole week off so today started our "staycation."   We started the "staycation" with some good ole chalky fun!

First I made a hopscotch for my daughter and we had a lot of fun reviewing numbers and then hoping on one leg then both legs.  I was reinforcing which leg was her right and her left.  Lots of good little lessons were added to our outside fun today.

Then daddy's artsy side kicked in and he drew a nice picture.

Then Selah and I drew a butterfly together.  :)

It's so nice to see a child playing outdoors. Nowadays most children prefer to stay indoors with their PSPs and computer games. Visiting from Hopalong Friday bloghop!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
