Gettin' Our Summer Fun On!

We have been having fun checking off things from our Sumer Fun List! Here are some of the things we have been doing this past week:

Science Experiments! We will do lots more of these, this was just the first one we have done. We've done it before & the kids LOVED it! Cheap & easy fun! All you need is a big box of baking soda, a bottle of vinegar, food coloring, cups, plates, and medicine droppers. 

Divide the vinegar into how many cups you want color for (We did six; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple)then mix the food coloring into the vinegar. Pour baking soda onto each plate and let them suck up the vinegar into the droppers and pour onto the plates. Then watch the colorful fizziness begin!

We also had a scavenger hunt with cousins this week! We went to my mom's where is was being held. I had a word list for the older kids who could read and a picture list for the two 2 year olds. My sister Mary made these cute bags for them to collect their stuff in, and everyone got ice cream bubbles for completing the hunt!

The winner of each hunt each got a beach ball! Ceri won the picture hunt and Taby won the word hunt! Way to guy girls!

Another thing we have checked off our list is art projects! We will do many more projects, but this was out first one; painting bird houses!

They did a super good job on them and they are now hanging on our deck, making it pretty!

We are already having so much fun this summer and we can't wait to do more fun stuff!
