A blue kind of day

This was one of those days when I just had to get them outside, and it was cold enough that we needed an activity rather than just aimless footling around which can be so fun on a more mild day.

So I chose finger paint. The request was for blue, so blue it was.


It was a bit of a finger paint disaster actually, if you want to lowdown on how NOT to make finger paint I've written it up here.

The backyard is still blue and I'm still picking the remaining blue bits out of bubs hair, when he sits still long enough for me to do so.

Roll on summer days, I'm ready for some heat! Then I'll let them finger paint nekkid and just shave their heads afterwards.

It must be so hard on days like yesterday when it's windy and pouring with rain, but you've got two boys dying to do something physical.

I've often said that there'd be a market for a toddler hamster wheel. Pop 'em inside and hang a chup-a-chup or donut on the outside and let them exhaust themselves, no?

Oh dear, my word verification thingy is 'fooless' - how apt!

Hmmm- yes nice hot days where you can also turn the hose on them afterwards!!

I love the toddler hamster wheel idea, perfect for such a small house as ours. I can just see it, hahahaha!
Yes they definitely had fun and Lou, I'm not sure if you're allowed to turn the hose on can't water the lawn, can you water the kids?!

He he! How fun!!! I'm sure they had a blast even though they made such a mess! The last couple of days here have been really warm and the boys have been playing in the sprinkler and little pool.

Oooh, fun, but no running through sprinklers here unfortunately, water restrictions strike again.

Hmmm, that reminds me of painting requests when my son was toddler. We still have paint on the wall that just refuses to budge! A long lasting memory of the day :)
