Outside Things

It's Summer time so we must go outside!  Here are some simple outside activities we have done:

#  19 Water Bottle Spray Art

I mixed food coloring and water together in a spray bottle that I picked up at The Dollar Spot at Target. 

We spray painted on some paper with the mixture.

#  25 Water Flowers

These watering cans were another good Dollar Spot find!  I just realized that a lot of this post seems to be about Target . . . hmmm does this mean I go there too often?                              

B is able to reach the hanging plants on the porch with the help of a stool . . .                

G waters the plants in front of the porch where he is able to easily reach them . . .                    

Baby M loves to watch her big brothers!

Blowing bubbles is one of those activities that has so many options.  For example : You could blow the bubbles and then . . .                                                                   

run after them and try to catch them or pop them
Or try to have a contest to see who can make the biggest bubble                                                      

Or dance and chase the bubbles with a teddy bear

Or laugh at your brothers for being so silly    and . . .

chew on your toes!


  1. Bubbles are a lifesaver in my house. The kids love them!

    1. They sure are a lifesaver it's a bonus that they cost next to nothing too!

  2. That's a pretty good skill to have-chewing on your toes. I love bubbles, they keep my kids happy for a very long time.

    1. Um, yeah, chewing on the toes . . . it grosses me out! She thinks it's pretty cool.

      Yes, bubbles are good stuff!

  3. Such lovely pictures! Painting outside and bubbles are a big time hit at my house too. Your baby girl is adorable:)

    1. Thank you!
      Yes, bubbles are lots of fun :)

  4. Had to laugh - I get my best items for the kids from Target, and yes, I tend to write posts where I name them quite often.

    1. Target is the best, isn't it?
