Messy (easy cleanup) fun with boys


Today we were bored and I decided to let my boys LIVE a little…and to keep them from screaming at each other in their boredom.  So I filled two pans with shaving cream, dropped in various colors of dye, stripped the boys down to their undies and gave them utensils to make a “painting” outside.


Benjamin kept insisting it was “cake”. 🙂


Levi wasn’t sure what to do at first until I told him to get all messy and I would just hose him off!  He had a blast then!


The beautiful thing about it all, the activity extends itself by becoming a water activity!  Hose them off (or let them jump in the pool) and let them loose to play for a while longer.  This probably kept them busy a total of 90 minutes!  Have fun!!
