Plastic Sheets and Water Beads…are awesome August 17, 2011

So there’s this blog that I’ve fallen madly, craftily, mom crushily in love with: Play at Home Mom
Here’s what we’ve happily copied in the last few days.
A Giant Plastic Bubble. Tip: do not attempt to puff it up with a leaf blower. Just don’t. Go get your fan.




And today we discovered Water Beads!
You can find them at Walmart on the floral supply aisle. You know, with moss, vases, floral tape.

You put them in water to soak for 4-6 hours. Plan accordingly.

And then, voila! Squishy, pretty fun!

And like all activities around here, it inevitably ended with a hose.



Shal, who is loving that she can blog from her phone!!!

Oh my goodness, can I really update my blog from my phone?!?!

Well this really changes my blogging game.

Maybe it’ll actually put me back in the game.

I hope you’re having a delicious summer!
