Saturday Stuff

Need a rainy day activity for kids? Try this. (Okay, it's not raining here but I really just wanted to sit at the computer with my coffee.)

Use a baking dish (the deeper the better) and put some uncooked rice in the pan. Get your loaders and bulldozers ready. Dig in!

It really helps if you don't mind sweeping up rice in about 30 minutes because with these shallow pans, there will be a mess. Oh yes, there will. As a matter of fact, I just heard a crash followed by Little Miss running to get her Susie Homemaker broom and dustpan. I am not even getting up. I don't want to know.

I am so excited that this weekend is finally going to be dry (hopefully) and possibly warmish. My parents bought the kids this

and it has been sitting in their garage ready to roll for a week and a half, but the weather has been such crap that we haven't been able to do anything with it. The kids don't even know about it yet! But, tomorrow we are going to Gamma and Campa's house. My dad has a regular Gator (as do we but for some reason Campa's is much more exciting.) Anyway, Dad always has the back of his loaded with gloves, gardening tools, bucket, etc. So, Mom got each kid a set of garden gloves, gardening tools, buckets. Little Miss even gets pink ones! Cute! It even has the extra dump bed!

Luckily it won't dump over 22 lbs so there is no fear of Tractor Boy dumping his sister out! Farm Guy got the same John Deere keychain Campa has for the kids' keys. I can't wait to see their faces tomorrow when the garage door opens.

The rest of the day includes errands, laundry, dishes, and sweeping up rice. Have a great Saturday!

Pin It!

I let Kyle do this with a bowl of flour once. I just vacuumed up the mess when he was done. Little Sweeties....
