This is a cheap and easy time killer if you’re LUCKY enough to live where the snow never melts. (ok, it’s not that bad here – we haven’t seen the grass in a month, but it could always be worse!)
I mixed up some colored water – just food coloring with the instruction to PLEASE not get their clothes dirty – in condiment and squirt bottles.
The kids liked the water in condiment bottles better, but I preferred them to have the squirt bottles. The water came out too fast in the condiment bottles for my liking – wasn’t as easy for them to have control, especially when Jacob was trying to write his name, and also – they ran out much quicker, which meant more trips for me inside to refill.
