Pop art - painting with popsicles

This one doesn't require a lot of explanation ;) We created this activity when we were figuring out what popsicle flavors tasted the best for a boy with a sore mouth, and while we were practicing colors all at the same time.

A Trip to the Swingset Showroom

Last week we decided to check out a giant play set store (Rainbow Recreation) not far from where we live...they have a free open play time for kids. They had so many cool things to do that Little Biscuit wasn't sure where to start!

Slides and swings and ladders and monkey bars and air pogo!
Trampolines...he loved that! But he pulled off his socks to feel the "bounce" on his toes so we had to take him off early ;)A basketball court!Setting up for a slam dunk!
His favorite discovery of all...a "just his size" play house with a full door! He couldn't stop going in and out, opening and shutting the door, sticking his head in the little round window, and washing his hands at the sink :) Too fun!Here he is inside another play house...It was a great morning and definitely worth the drive out :)

Stairway Safety 101: Going Downstairs

Ba-Bonk! That's the sound we've heard almost every day for the last few months as Little Biscuit has discovered the fun of sliding down stairs on his backside. It's the way we taught him to get down safely without falling...and now it's one of his favorite at-home games!

He's ready to ride down!There he goes! Ba-bonk! Ba-bonk! Ba-bonk!
Whee! This is fun!I did it! Wow, that was cool!Time to go back up! He must think he's Evil Knievel...planning his next ride down on that motorcycle! Whew! Breaktime.
