"cool" summer activity! :)

z 004
I have the perfect thing you can do for your kids this summer!
I believe I saw this idea last year on this blog.
And I also think it was in Family Fun magazine.
Anyways, it's awesome.
Your kids will adore this. :)

Find some fun plastic toys that you inevitably have scattered around the house, if you are anything like us. :) Then find a small plastic container that you can fill with the toys, and then fill with water. Pop it in the freezer and when it is completely frozen, grab a squirt bottle filled with hot water and give the iced-up toys to your kiddos! They will have the most amazing time squirting warm water at these goofy little toys. We've already done a few of these this summer and Andrew loves it each and every time!
If you have a child that wields a hammer well like Andrew does, that also provides some fun entertainment... trying to slam open the ice is always exciting. :) But the spray bottle is definitely a safe alternative, of course!
Happy warm days, friends!

i want to try this and let henry use a hammer. it's like excavating! how fun is that.

p.s. i love andrew's socks!! and i'm so happy to see that my funny little 6 year old isn't the only boy that shows his personality with his clothes. :)
