The World Is Your Canvas!

In an attempt to keep the boys busy today, I decided to send them outside on our font deck in the snow. It was a nice day out, not too cold, so it was perfect for some playtime outside. The rule was that they had to stay on the deck where I could see them. I put them out, and tossed out a couple of wooden spoons and said" dig!"

Then I sat down to eat my lunch while the baby slept.

As I was relaxing for a few seconds, it hit me......why stop at just spoons? I got two spray bottles and put in some water and food coloring.

This is what happened.........

Our deck is pretty large, and with the recent snow, was a blank page for coloring! It was great. They had alot of fun, except for one minor altercation of a snowball to the face.They stayed out for about an hour, and then came in for hot chocolate. They asked if next time they could have more colors.

We'll see.
