Lava Lamps


 I am really loving pinterest this summer. 
Today for an activity, we made lava lamps.
I got this idea from Come Together Kids.
Theirs looked way cooler than ours and turned out better but we still had fun doing it.
  
Add about 2/3 full with oil and then add water.  Wait for the bubbles to go away.
Katie's didn't work so well because we choose the wrong color.  You need a definite contrasting color.
very excited kids waiting to drop their alka-seltzer
Smile on his face=SUCCESS!
We had a great time doing this.
Each day of the week has a theme to it.  

Sunday=Church Day
Monday=Fun Day
Tuesday=Library Day
Wednesday=Park Day.  (It was Friend-day Wednesday but our friends all go to the park on Wednesday.)
Thursday=Food Day
Friday=Friend Day
Saturday=Family Day

BTW, we did go to the library today and Tyler got his own library card.  He was so excited.  We even bought him a lanyard to put his card on so he doesn't lose it.  (I need a picture of him with it)

We are really excited about our schedule.  I think it will be a lot of fun to be able to hang out with the kids this summer and enjoy every day we possibly can.

Trish,
You are such a great mom and I love all the posts you have done lately. I love the different days you created. My mom did something similar when I was growing up and I still have special memories of those times. The most important being that she cared enough to spend time with us doing things. Keep up the great job!!!
