Zoo

 On our drive home from our trip to the ocean we stopped at the zoo.

Ocean

We've been wanting to go to the ocean for quite some time and with this spring being so amazingly warm it seemed like the perfect time to go.

 The water was a little too cold for swimming (although there were kids in the water... Brrrr) We spent all of our time looking for shells. L filled her whole bucket full and B and I searched in between the rocks which is where we found some of the most interesting and biggest shells.

Butterfly art

To make the butterflies paint a piece of white cardstock paper using your choice of paint. We used water colour paints.
Once the paper is dry, punch out your butterfly shapes. Bend the wings forward slightly and attach an adhesive foam square to the center of the butterfly. (I bought a sheet of these at the dollar store in the craft section)
I used a wood frame I already had, removed the plastic front and let L paint it white which she did a really great job covering the whole frame. I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the frame size and let her stick the butterflies on it. You can use a larger size of frame to have more space to display more butterflies.

Puddles

We went on a walk in search for puddles to jump in. There were a few along the path.
 But the best puddles were the ones off the main path and down the dirt trail.
