Fun with water colors

I don't know about you but sometimes I catch myself making things TOO complicated! I'll want to do something fun with the girls, I come up with an idea, it takes time, planning and supplies and then... it doesn't happen. Sometimes it is best to KEEP IT SIMPLE! I love art and water colors are fun, simple and easy to do! The other day Jilian asked to paint and instead of saying "no" I took the quick 5 minutes to get them, some paper, water and a towel. While she set at the table painting, I set across from her cutting felt to make tooth fairy pillows. Both got to have fun AND have quality time together.

LOL I so get it! I went to make foam for Wyatt the other day (soap flakes beaten with water) but I followed the playcentre recipe aka HUGE PORTIONS! It took every large bowl I own, both soup pots, and kitchen sink to contain it all. By the time I had it all stored in places, Wyatt was bored of it and I had to clean it all up. Being made from soap, the water just kept diluting it...my hands stunk for 3 days of nasty soap.
