Okay so far this weekend has been crazy, fun, and hilarious!!! The Questival has definitely been amazing!
Here is a little sneak peek of what we have been up to. A full post will be up soon. Promise!IMG_6191.MOV
As you may know I nanny for a wonderful family that has three little kids. The little girl is two and a half and the twin boys are about fifteen months. Add Emma to the mix and it is quiet a houseful. We love to have fun though and some of my favorite things to do with the kids is experiment with art projects. Our latest adventure involved a lot of goop fun. The best part about it was that it was mess free. And when you are trying to take care of four children under the age of three, you can't ask for anything more. Here is what we did. (sorry about the low quality pictures. I was taking them super quick with my I Phone)
- 1 cup cornstartch
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 cups cold water
- Ziploc bags (I used 1 quart size bag and 3 sandwich bags for my kids but you can use gallon size bag if you like.)
- tape (duct tape, painters tape, any kind of tape to completely seal the bag)
What is Yellow bath time you may ask?
Why its the time I put all things yellow in with Emma as she takes a bath. Best part about it, I let Emma paint herself and everything else in the tub yellow. She absolutely loved it. And I loved it because it was super Fun and Easy to clean up. I know she is a bit young to learn and remember her colors. But I figure, what the heck, start her off young. I think tomorrow we might just have a pink bath time.
Bath time Paint
Baby Powder Baby Soap Water Food Coloring
Basically its 3 parts baby powder to 1 part baby soap. If the consistency is not liquidy enough for you, just add water until its perfect. Then choose a color from your food coloring stash. Squirt a few drops in and ta da. Baby Friendly paint. This kept Emma entertain for quiet some time. And to clean all you have to do it rinse it all off. Like I said clean up is easy peasy.
I am so excited that Spring is here. I love the nice fresh weather where I can spend my days outside exploring with Emma. One thing that I am looking forward to is Emma's first Easter. I just love coming up with different ideas to celebrate the Holiday. While I can't do everything that I dream about doing until she gets a little older, I thought I would share with you come fun Easter Ideas that you can do with your family. So for the next couple of weeks join me as we discover some fun ways to celebrate Easter with loved ones. First on my list is a must for Easter... Decorating Eggs of course!

- Take the egg out and pull the rubber band off and wala a crazy egg
- Pick a crayon to use and write/ draw anything you want to on the egg.
