I little over a month ago, I had the not so great idea of finger painting in the bath tub.  Mommy fail.  Recently, I had another idea that actually went over REALLY well. 

A few weeks ago HJ and I were bored with all the cold weather.  We were sick of playing with the same old toys.  We were even throwing fits about playing hide-and-go-seek.  We had to think of something new to do.  Our solution?  We laid a towel on the kitchen floor, set out various size plastic bowls and filled some up with water.

 

HJ thought it was great fun to “dump” water back and forth.

We also worked on colors with the bowls.  He was very careful about not spilling or splashing even though I thought for sure it was a mess just waiting to happen.

It was great to do something a little out of the ordinary and it kept HJ occupied for quite a while.

    How old is he again? I feel like I should start doing some activities with Stella who just turned a year and I have no idea what to start doing. Do you have any websites or other parenting blogs that have ideas for littler ones?

  2. I thought you were staying off your knees?! How are they now? (Looks like lots of fun BTW).

  3. Fun! Thats a great activity Emma liked it too. Have you guys tried playing with shaving cream yet?
