We found ourselves with an unexpected free day on Friday, so we chose a few ideas from Pinterest and had some fun!
First, we painted rocks with little hearts on them. The original idea is here – I found it so charming. Here are our finished stones (it’s winter, so we chose stones from our own rock collections. We both find pretty stones irresistible, so there are always extras around!):
Today (Sunday), we placed our stones all over in unexpected spots in the front yard. We will definitely be doing this again in the future and taking them out into the world! It’s so simple but it made me really happy, and I know it would make me happy to find one while I was out and about.
Then Neko had a bath with glow sticks. So simple, but a big hit! Works even better with two or more kids.
While she was in the bath, I put together some “ice eggs” for another day. Here is the inspiration for these:
We’ll be playing with these in the bath sometime soon. Right now there are a bunch in my deep freeze!
