Playing Boats

It amazes me how different playing with my daughter and my son truly are.  I have a very girly girl and I have my tough boy!  It is absolutely eye opening comparing how each play and rethinking about my daughter when she was the age of my son.  It also makes me more aware of being a better teacher, they have completely different learning styles and being aware now is very beneficial.  

One thing I have mentioned is he is not a fan of the bath unless I make it fun!  You can find lots of bath ideas here on my blog.  Bath time is not just for getting clean, there is lots of fun and learning that can take place!

One thing I bought for him from one of my swap groups is some boats.  We have two small boats for the bath tub and my son loves using them in his bath or even out of the bath.  He pushes them and sinks them and tries to park them in the boat warehouse when he is done with his bath.  At almost 2 years old he has a great imagination and I hope I can foster that imagination more as he continues to grow.  He also has his big 2 year old Birthday party coming up soon so we might have to request some more boat toys or toys for the bath tub.  

Lately he is trying to steal his sisters little princess's and put them on the boat.  It is quite funny to watch!  I think I may have to find some little boy figures like GI Joe's or something so he can have other people rather then just the princess's.   Must put those on the birthday list!  :) 

Do you have a children of the opposite sex?  Can you see the big differences as you play and watch them grow.  I think it is very fascinating to see their little brains learning.

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
