messy day – day 1

we’ve got about a week and a half left of preschool for the year.  i am PSYCHED for summer, but i am sad sad sad that the school year is ending.  babycake’s “3s” teachers had the great idea to have a “messy day” and do all the fun fabulous messy things we all kinda shy away from – and do them outside. 

fingerpainting (babycakes is writing her name):

yes, there’s paint in her ponytail and up to her elbows:

mud pies (so lovely!):

feet painting:

have a look at this – this started out as a plain white sheet hanging from the swingset, and the kids sprayed it with colored water – isn’t it gorgeous?!

AND there was a whole lot more – the good news is that i’m going back tomorrow to help with the “4s”, so hopefully i’ll get the shots i missed.  SO much fun!!

in other news, i planted perennials earlier this afternoon.  i’ve been out to check them twice.  i’m sad to report back that nothing has grown or blossomed in the past 90 minutes.

    LOVE the colored sheet. That’s a great summer idea for the kids…use tye dye colors instead of just colored water and let them design their own bed sheets! They look like they were having sooo much fun! Bet those plants will have grown a lot by tomorrow. 🙂
