B's Birthday

We took a chance with the weather this year considering there has been so many unusally warm days. Most years it has been cold around B's birthday and we always plan for an indoor party. A day before the party it was really nice outside and then the temperature dropped overnight and it was cold again. We went ahead with most of the party plans anyways, the girls went in the hot tub and roasted marshmallows and hotdogs around the fire. It was too cold to sleep out in the tent though even the girls were determined to at least try it. They quickly changed their minds.

Painting with 'Worms'

 To prepare your 'worms' you will need to boil spaghetti noodles until tender. Let cool. Put different coloured paints on a tray or a paper plate. Pull 'worm' through paint and slide across a piece of paper to leave 'worm' trails. Pieces of yarn also make great 'worms'.

Rocks and dandelions

We went hiking. L picked dandelions along the trail. E filled his pockets with rocks. We went down to the river and threw rocks into the water.  L and E thought it was the best thing ever to throw rocks into the water. The big girls threw rocks and tried to get them the other side of the river.

Juice can egg stamping

 Wash out a frozen juice can and squeeze slightly to alter the circle opening into an oval shape. We used the cardboard style juice cans as they can bend into the shape that you want.
Dip juice can into glue and start stamping. Then shake glitter all over paper. This is the part L loved. Shake excess glitter off paper and you have sparkly eggs.
