Outdoor Day

Daddy had to stop and play on his way to work.

Today was an outdoor day, which is synonymous with chalk, bubbles, dirt and treehouse. We tried a new activity called Bubble Socks. All you need is an empty plastic bottle, a sock, tape, dish soap, water and food colouring. 

1. Cut off bottom of plastic bottle
2. Take sock and cover the hole. Make sure it's pulled tight and held in place with tape or an elastic
3. Fill a shallow bowl with a combo of dish soap and water.
4. If you want to add colour, place drops of food colouring on the sock.
4. Put the end of the sock in the dish and blow through the mouth of the bottle.

This activity is age appropriate for kids who know how to blow out, without inhaling back in. Something we discovered the hard way as Levi was spewing bubbles out of his mouth. However, he picked up the trick quickly.

Jet didn't stay on grandma's lap for very long.
