How Due Date Calculators Can Change Your Pregnancy for the Better

Learning that you are pregnant can be one of the most joyous occasions in a woman’s life. As many of us know pregnancy can happen spontaneously or after much trying.  Regardless of how a woman becomes pregnant, it is vitally important for her to know when she…

 

Today has been a lazy day, but we have had a great day. It is starting to look and feel more like fall out. The leaves are not changing color as much, due to lots of rain. They are however falling out of the trees, and the temperatures have gotten really cool and crisp. I wanted to share a fun activity with you, that is perfect anytime of year. It is especially good for those days where it is to cold to go out and play or when it is rainy. It will keep them entertained for at least 30 minutes if you do both parts of the activity.

Supplies:

*Ice cube trays * food coloring * water

Directions:

Fill cups with water and add food coloring. Stir to make sure they are completely mixed.

Then pour the colored water into the ice cube tray and freeze.

Once they are frozen pop them out and put them in a shallow tray on a peice of paper.

Now your child is ready to move them around and paint.

For an added fun experiment:

Instead of using water for the ice cubes, use vinegar. Then when they are done painting with the ice cubes, they can take a mixture of baking soda and water with eye droppers and drop the mixture on the ice cubes. They fix up, and it will make a beautiful rainbow. This will keep them entertained for about 15 minutes or longer.

I hope you have fun with your child while they are doing these activities. They can learn all about colors, and making rainbows.

Tips: Make sure to use washable food coloring it will stain hands, or you can coat your hands and your childs hands in oil. This will help keep hands from staining. Make sure to use a dish for the art part or you will have melted ice cube mess everywhere.

I love this! We've done the colored ice cubes before (we also put different primary colors in a bowl together to see what new color they will create when they melt), but I am excited about trying out the vinegar variation. Thanks!
