Building Rainbows

It is warm here in Arizona compared to most of the country right now but still not hot enough to swim in our own personal pool but our neighborhood has a heated pool through the winter which we have really been enjoying. Lizzy still loves the water but I think this year will be her last year to wear the float swimsuit. Our goal is for Lizzy to be swimming on her own this summer. Once Lizzy and I get back from a trip to Houston it's time to start swimming lessons to be ready for pool season. Today Lizzy swam on her own for almost a minute without any help!

Whoa Volcano!

Lizzy has been wanting to make volcano for a while now so we finally did. We used a vase and covered it with old play dough and a salt dough mixture and let it dry. We painted it then used the recipe bellow. Here is a video of our volcano erupting.

1 tablespoon liquid dish washing soap 3 drops red food coloring 1 cup vinegar 1 1/2 cups warm water 2 tablespoons baking soda

Snowman Footprint Craft

Every year we have done some sort of footprint craft for Christmas/Winter. Since it's still winter I thought I would share this craft we did around Christmastime. We did a footprint snowman using Lizzy's foot. Pretty simple to do with some paint and markers. My favorite all time keepskate is Lizzy's 1st footprint craft. I love looking back at her little footprints. This will probably be our last footprint craft as Lizzy's feet are getting bigger but we will still do handprint crafts.
