Colors of the Rainbow

After an very exhausting, restless sleep last night (I think Ethan's having separation anxiety), the kids were ramped and ready to go. Wait. That doesn't sound right, does it? Poor Mama is EXHAUSTED!! And they want to play, play, play! Well, what's a gal to do?

Jump on board!

Ava kept asking "what can I do?" And honestly, she'd been "doing" stuff all morning but I decided to check out my new FAVORITE site, Pinterest and look for a good activity for the kids. (Seriously, check out this site! It's AMAZING! Something for absolutely everyone!)

We found this great outdoor painting project that looked like lots of fun, so off we went to get creative!

Homemade outdoor paint recipe:
1 part cornstarch
1 part water
food coloring

 You can make as many colors as you want! Lots of options!

 Having a good time!

 Then the fun began...painting on themselves. Oh well, comes off pretty well. Who cares if they have slightly blueish hands and feet for a few days?

Of course, Monkey See, Monkey Do! Ethan has to paint HIS hands, too!
 Oh, in case you're wondering. That's my belly shot. Only 7 more weeks til baby girl is here!

And the final project! Cute and different! Gonna have to try this again sometime!
