Hot and Cold

February 4, 2010

We have this sand and water table that has been a big hit with the kids. I actually unveiled it the day we came to paint the house, in an effort to keep the kids outside. It was marginally successful. But it has certainly served us well. I really like that it is elevated and somehow the combination of sand and water is irresistible. A visiting friend demonstrated how fun it was to mix the sand and water, much to my chagrin, but until then, the kids followed the rules.

Unfortunately, the poor table has been lonely on our deck for the last several months.

The kids love the idea of playing in the snow, but most of our snowy days have been awfully cold. Today I brought the table into the kitchen and filled one side with snow and one with warm water. I think it was a hit.

All my kids are waterbugs and there was, surprise surprise, significant splashing. Ah well, a good nudge toward mopping the floor.

Of course, there were the same kind of shenanigans as we find outside….

    I know–obviously not optimum focus, but the expressions overcame the flaws for me.
