Messy Summer Fun... Week 4... Very Messy

This week for messy summer fun one of the things I had the kids do was paint with frozen paint ice cubes... that I made in the shape of Hawaiian masks... I made them by putting a little bit of washable paint in the ice cube tray...added some water... stirred and put in the freezer for 15 minutes... took them out... stirred again... and put them back in the freezer until I was ready to use them... All the kids had a great time with these... they liked both the texture... and the vivid colors...
It was fun to see the colors "melt" onto the paper...
Overall... messy... but definitely not so messy that it couldn't be done inside...without me panicking...
Loved the project....
The next activity I had the kids do I would strongly encourage you not to do in your house...seriously... very messy...
I filled water balloons up with shaving cream... they were awesome... when they popped... the shaving cream held the shape of the balloons...
Also when they popped... the shaving cream went everywhere...
EVERYWHERE!!!
The kids seemed to be upset when we ran out of them... but no worries.. it was not long before they went back to the water fun...
And other backyard toys...
Some peaceful reflection... or observing the water fight...
To see what others did this week check out Tot School at 1+1+1=1; Preschool Corner at Homeschool Creations; Mom 2 lil Posh Divas; Beneath the Rowan Tree and the Weekly Wrap-up at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
