1. Count your chicks before they hatch
2. Get your troops outside!
Each of the kids painted a wooden plate with a solid color. This took all of 2 minutes. When they dried (5 minutes, in the sun,) the kids used the end of a pencil dipped in paint to make dots. The ArtistChild and I added the stripes. More pictures of our plates here.
I'm sure the boys were listening along to the history lesson at this point (cough, laugh)
5. Play in the moat.
Thanks to big brothers, we had more
Mud Fun today.
Yes, if we run out of mud, we just make more.
**Quick bath after that.**
6. Watch for airplanes
Using the "new" plates we painted.
