hot fun!

Wanna keep your toddler/preschool/self busy for at least an hour?
Then I have the activiity for you! :) I first saw this in one of my parent magazines...then April at Janesays did it last year with her daughter...I knew Moses would love it!
Basically, you round up some little water-proof toys...
Fill a shallow bowl with water...the one I used was about three inches deep...if you have older or younger kids you could adjust the depth to increase/decrease the challenge level...
Then arrange the toys in the water filled bowl...
And freeze overnight.
I gave Moses a squirt bottle and a small screwdriver...he LOVES any reason to use a screwdriver!
He went to town...
I helped him when he needed it...
Making it a fun activity for the both of us...
And he loved the power of having his OWN squirt bottle...
Nothing like FREE, cold fun on a hot summer day!
And like I said...it kept him busy for at least an hour. :)

If you think about it...say a prayer for my husband...he goes tomorrow for the interview of his life! :) Pray for confidence and wisdom! :)

I will pray for Doug. Exciting times. Kelly

p.s. I think every toddler in America has that chic-fil-a cow right now. :) At least everyone I know does. :) Kelly

hey! just caught up on your blog...we were out of town.

first of all - LOVE this idea! i'll be doing it soon! thanks for sharing!

and just wanted to encourage you with sleep training...just to hang in there. every kid is SO different...but they eventually all get it. all 4 of mine were different - but they all sleep great now - i know you know this - but it's worth it in the long run!

you are a GREAT mom!!!

How'd your husband's interview go??! I said a little prayer for y'all :) Whatever the outcome, it's comforting to know that God's plans are always PERFECT!

I have to say THANK YOU for this idea... I think I have seen this before as well, but after you posted this it reminded me to actually do this with Andrew! We put a bunch of little toys inside some tupperware last night before bed and he was busy for an hour and a half today hacking the ice away! :) Thanks girlie, super idea for such warm days too!! xoxox Holly
