Remember the birdseed cookies from a couple weeks ago? Not such a hit with the birds. Just FYI.
But, another activity from the same site was definitely a success. I explained it to the boys and they were excited to gather up little "treasures" from around the house. Finally, a use for all that irritating clutter.
I got smart this time and filled a container with water and treasures for each of the boys. Here's a tip: Don't use your child's small sand bucket for this project. Ours cracked.
It ended up being a great time killer for a warm afternoon. I gave the boys a dropper, a spray bottle, salt and some sharp instruments (for the older ones)and they spent a LONG time working to uncover all the frozen odds and ends.
