My kids called these Earthday Cakes and sang the birthday song while they made them. They had lots of fun doing it. I really cant recall letting them play in the mud before. Thats not very Super Mommy-like of me. I need to be better at allowing messes. I will work on that.
Get ready for Earthday Cakes! I bought some tin pans at Honks ($ store) 4/$1 last week so we were ready. The first thing we did was go on a Nature Hike and they gathered the ingredients for their cakes. They brought a backpack and a cup to gather their plants, rocks, etc.
I brought a garbage bag so we could do a "trash hike" and gather litter while we were out in the neighborhood. I should have brought a paper bag for the recycleables that were scattered about...I will have to remember that next time. (I just put the little hand with the clover there because I thought it was cute...)
Then I gave them their pans, buckets, bowls, utensils, and a full watering can and sent them to the part of our yard with lots of dirt.
We will have to try this again...they liked it so much I am sure they will be asking me about it again soon.
This is a place where we share the crazy fun that we have at our house. I am always collecting ideas, trying new things, and planning family fun! My sisters-in-law Jen and Jodi contribute as well. I plan to post a Super Mommy Secret every Tuesday and a craft or Family Fun Idea every Thursday...and of course there will be more posts sprinkled in depending how crazy the Super Mommy-ing is going for the 3 of us. Thanks for reading!
