Outside Winter Adventure

I have to find new things to get me motivated to play outside.  I miss summer...but winter can be fun to.  First we went to the Dollar Store and purchased balloons.  Then we filled them up with water and food coloring and set them outside to freeze.  :) We had all different sizes and lots of different colors. 

The next day it was time to bundle up and enjoy the sunshine and our frozen ice to make some sculptors.  

 Holding a pink one because pink is cool. 


Trying to stack them up.  Caution when you take the balloons off I had some that were not frozen all the way through so they were not round and smooth and ice can become sharp so just throw off to the side if they are not playable.  

Love how the sunlight is hitting it and the snow sticking to it.  

She wanted to stomp on them here.

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!
