The first thing we did was decorate some outfits for Baby. I thought it would be a fun way to get the kids excited about their upcoming little brother and to make something special for him. The top picture is a watermark tee using glue and dye that I got the idea from this blog. The glue took forever to dry, but it was easy and I like how they turned out.
Next we tried acrylic paints...I think Sam's is adorable but Annaleigh's was pretty gruesome. Hers looked like a giant blood stain. I had to throw it away it was so bad. :P
We also broke out the pool I found for $6 over the winter. Bad mommy forgot sunblock though, so the kids got burned.
We're the mean kind of parents who pretty much do not buy the kids toys other than birthdays & holidays (my poor kids don't even get kids meals besides special occasions, haha) so one day we went to the dollar store and the kids got to pick out two things each. Allie had a hard time narrowing it down to two, but it's fun for them to be able to buy whatever they want.
Annaleigh chose a wand and fake flowers
Sam got a football and a little ring toss game
There have a been other things done as well, playground trips and lots of paint and playdough. Today we're making icecream sandwiches and dying Easter eggs, and tomorrow strawberry picking!
