Outside fun

The weather lately has been beautiful. We have been enjoying it and trying some new outside activities.

First we started off with a little semi-nude golf.

Jillian just enjoyed being on a blanket in the grass.

We had to have a popsicle of course.

The next day we tried a few activities I got from Little Bit Funky. The first one was sidewalk paint.
1/4 c. cornstarch
1/4 c. water
food coloring

It was a big hit.

Here is one of Hadley's creations. I think I will add more color next time.

Then we went to the back to treasure hunt in a block of ice. You freeze some toys in water and then give your child a spray bottle and something to break the ice.
Probably not the best activity for a 2 year old who wants instant gratification. She did well but we ended up playing in the sprinkler and leaving the ice to melt. I also think mine was a little too thick. We will try again another time.

I will leave you with a couple of cute pictures if I do say so myself.
