Here are some fun projects we’ve done over the last month.
Building with PVC pipes
Sidewalk painting with a mixture of cornstarch, water and food coloring.
Construction at the mud pit. In the last shot, Ian built a bridge out of scrap wood and the boys had a blast crossing it over and over.
I made a type of shape sorter out of a gift box and set out a bowl of stones and polished glass shapes. Elijah enjoyed fitting them into the various-sized holes.
Playing with super-absorbent polymer “water beads.” They started out about a quarter of the size they appear in the first picture.
A water bead counting board
A container of water beads and various pouring and scooping utensils. I hid some of the polished glass shapes in the beads to discover as “treasure.”
Everyone is digging in!
Just so we’re clear: Every. Single. Project turns into a most redonkulous mess. Yes, I know that is not a proper word, but neither is the mess these squishy little fellas make. But, I keep providing munition because they are so incredibly fun to watch when they play, and I’m fascinated by their ideas.
