Octo-Bird Fest- Fall Fun

One of the reasons I love living in a bigger city is all the free or affordable events.  I love the events that are geared for family and children the most! :) 

This weekend our local art museum had a big event, the Octo-Bir Fest.  It is a great event for kids.  Majority of the events were free or VERY affordable.  

My kids both had fun on a beautiful, sunny, and warm day!  The kids got to play some games, do some crafts, look at some of the art in the outside garden, decorate a pumpkin, and my favorite we did a caricature!  What do you think of the caricature?  :)  I love my son's in the picture but me and my daughter look a bit odd.  hahaha!  

The crafts included a sand art pumpkin which my daughter loved, stamping on some birds, and a ghost.  My daughter said her favorite thing was decorating a pumpkin.  She decorated her pumpkin with some pipe cleaners, fabric, and marker.  :)  I will try to get some pictures up of it later.  :) 

Hope everyone is enjoying their fall fun! :)

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!
