Today we had a playdate. We decided to use pool noodles to makes some flower art. I bought the flower shaped pool noodles at the Dollar Tree and cut them into 3 different sizes with a serrated knife (apparently, I can't cut straight).
We used the thickest noodles to do flower painting prints.
I love the brightness of this art.
We used the skinniest noodles along with silk flowers and cut out magazine flowers to make flower collages.
Many of the children sat for a very long time doing this gluing project.
We used the medium noodles, cut pieces of straws, and beads to make necklaces.
Aidman was very proud of his necklace.
Today we went to some local sand doons to play. We had such a fun time climbing and running around.
Each time the kiddos got to the top of a doon, they raised their arms and shouted "WOOHOO!".
I think we all got a GREAT workout today!
Aidman LOVES to take pictures now.

We LOVE dip! We also love making full meals that are just for dipping, and we do it quite often. We call them dippin' dinners, although more often than not they are for lunch.
Today we made hummus (chick peas, olive oil, lemon juice, s &p, oregano, and basil) and dipped pita, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
We've had Muffin Tin dippin' dinners. This one included guacamole, black bean dip, salsa, sour cream, chocolate, and yogurt and we dipped in nachos with cheese, cucumbers, carrots, bananas, cherries, and plums.
Here we had tzatziki sauce (cucumber, greek yogurt, garlic, s & p, lemon juice, and dill) and dipped in red pepper, pita, chicken, carrots, cucumber, zucchini, and tomatoes.
We have also done dippin' dinners with homemade chicken nuggets and fries with sauce, warm spinach artichoke dip with dippers, and much much more! My kids LOVE to dip, and I love that it's a fun way to get them to eat their fruit and veggies.
