Messy Summer Fun... Week 5.... the finale...

This week was our Messy Summer Fun Finale....and we had 17 kids...17!!!! So Messy...So Fun!!! We did Toilet Paper Mache... I did this last year with Ryleigh and thought...hmmm.. so messy...perfect for a ton of kids... :-)


I covered plastic cups with plastic wrap...and then had the kids (moms) dip toilet paper into a glue/water solution I made... then stick them on the cups...The older kids (ages 4 and up) caught on to this project and were able to do it themselves (wanting to stick their hands into the goo was a different matter)....
The younger kids (ages 14 months- 3) had a different reaction...they were either SO into it...or really appalled at the thought... Can you guess how Braeden felt about it?
Appalled....
Ryleigh loved it...
Since the shaving cream balloons were such a big hit from earlier this summer, I decided to do them again... and water balloons...
Still a kid favorite!
I think pretty much all the kids were covered...
I'm not sure exactly how this happened... but I have an idea... Sorry Kara!!! :-)
For the water activity/ gross motor skills... we set up a bounce house with a water slide...
How many kids can you fit in one of these?
The water-slide was a fun way to end the messy summer...
The water slide resembled sprinklers too much...so Braeden watched from the top of the club house..
Ending the day with Popsicles...
Hopefully I haven't completely scared away the mommies and they will come back next summer!

Those moms are probably thanking God for you. No way would I invite 17 kids over, let alone let them be messy. LOL You are totally awesome!!
