Silly Faces

Sometimes it is challenging to find activities that all 3 kids enjoy. Today I gave them white paper, markers to draw a face and old face parts stickers we had leftover from a balloon kit. This was a big hit. They all enjoyed making silly faces.

This was good for Sarah as she practice where each part goes. Fun way to use leftovers. :)

Art Project: Magical Fish

Inspired by Klee's "The Golden Fish"

Last night, the boys worked on making this paiting by mixing oil pastels and watercolors. The goal was to make the big fish "glow". It was a fun way to end our day.

Children's Museum of Houston

After living in the Houston area for three years we finally made our very first visit to the Children's Museum. Sarah could have probably waited another year but she still enjoyed "most" of it. The boys had a blast. The asked if they could go back the next day. Not as big as Chicago's but LOVED all the "brainy" challenges in almost all the exhibits. Caleb could have stayed in the inventions room all day and Noah loved the kid town.
