Here’s some more stuff we tried today:
We have been doing a lot of crayoning and painting since we seem to be stuck indoors a lot of late. Decided we should try something different today. Here are two things we did that the boys liked:
1. Set up three chairs one behind the other and took plastic plates that we pretended were steering wheels. We pretended to be driving our own cars and the boys made very realistic car and traffic noises. We drove to a lot of places including to the market.
2. I set up the bathroom with some papers and 2 buckets with some colored water .. they shoved the newspapers in and squeezed them, mushed them, tore them, soaked them. (Now i have some paper mush that i may want to do something with, but i am not sure the rain and humidity are going to permit me to do much). Boys enjoyed it and played for a bit.
3. I put a bunch of ice cubes in the bath tub and also squirted some shaving foam into it…they had a blast trying to catch the ice cubes which got slippery and started melting pretty quickly.
It was easy to clean up after as we were already in the bathroom. Thinking of trying some painting in the bathroom too…we have done it before and it usually works well. Boys have now just gotten pretty rowdy so am trying to figure out what i can do without it turning into disaster central…even more so because we are now in a rental.
