Messy Summer Fun.... Week 3

This was our third week of Messy Summer Fun... and we attempted to paint with pudding... lets remember the key word ATTEMPTED when we get to the craft... otherwise, the kids had fun with some water activities, sensory bin and relay/obstacle race...

Ryleigh... cooling down the slide....
Braeden... ready for action....
Originally I had planned on having the kids paint with vanilla pudding.... it didn't set when I made it... so I added in some corn starch... that didn't do it either...so then I thought... "What could I add to make it thicker?".... Raspberry Jello of course... but no... it still didn't set...
So what we got....was a yummy smelling...very sticky...very messy... MESS... and the kids loved it!!!
I gave them sponges ... from those magic capsules that turn into sponges when you put them in the water.... and had them paint...
Braeden.... refused to respond when I asked him to smile.. as he was intently watching a bug on the ceiling of the tent...
The kids enjoyed this obstacle course... I had them grab a water filled sponge from the bucket...run down the yard and ring out the sponge (and then drop it)...run to water balloons and then run with the balloon to the "X" and try and break the balloon on it...
Mass chaos....
Enjoying the water sensory tub under the shade of the slide...
Cooling off with a mini-melt Popsicle....

Fun! How did you end up inviting people to come and get it all set up? Just curious...I would love to do this sometime or something like it, maybe in the winter-and not so messy. :) Mainly because in the winter we will be inside. Thanks for your help! :)
