Well, looks like I just found a new fun activity for the kids and thought I'd pass it along in case your munchkins need a new activity too, though you guys probably do this all the time.
I hate going outside. Especially since I have so much to do inside but the kids love it. So today I trapped them on the deck. I gave them two mixing bowls filled with water with a drop or two of food coloring, measuring cups, a few tumblers, a turkey baster and a bowl full of ice cubes. They've been out there for an hour with no desire to stop. And now I can be in the kitchen cleaning (and blogging too I guess).
I think this is what's known as a win-win. I love when winning is simple.
