Me as a Paper Doll

We were looking at one of our old Family Fun magazines and came across this fun idea. You take a picture of your child. They cut it out and then you can design outfits for them to "try on."
 

 
We printed ours off of the computer, but you could also print photographs at your processing store.

The kids can design their own outfits on construction paper or craft paper. Or you can cut outfits out of magazines for your kids to try on. Or you can design some of your very own.

Water Blob

I've had water blob on our bucket list for the last two years, but well it looked like it was going to be a very big deal to make it and I just didn't try. But it is super simple and with an extra pair of willing hands, it takes very little time.
 
 
To be honest, I only got down to trying it out because our pool sprung a leak and we needed something to do. The only requirements are plastic, duct tape and water.
 
You can make these things mini or super large. It depends on your tastes. :)
 
You start by folding the plastic in half. Tape the open ends, but leave a hole just big enough for your water hose.
 
 
Find a flat surface to lay it down on and begin to fill it with water. We found it easiest to prop the hose up on a water pitcher so that the hose stayed put and no water leaked out.
 

Then it is time to test it out.

Our plastic was thinner than I'd recommend so a few holes started. We just covered them with tape. :)

Worm Call

According to this article from Family fun, if you put a stick in the ground two inches and rub with another stick for two minutes, worms should come out of the ground.



So we set off to find two sticks.



We tried several different places.


 


 
 
The only thing that came out was a centipede. Well three centipedes.
 
 
So we decided to do some digging and find them the old fashion way!

 

 
Then it was time to put them back and watch them tunnel into the dirt.
 
 
Jo-Jo was pretty excited about the smooth sticks that we created from all of the rubbing and set off to rub off some more bark!

Bean Bag Toss

It was a rainy day. We decided to play bean bag toss, but Wheel was napping. So we decided to play in the garage...







Everyone had different spots to stand on. Every turn they got 3 chances to throw. One point was awarded for making it into the first box. Two for the second, and three for the third. If one went into each box, they got a bonus 2 points.
