Rain Day

7 Aug

After our nice day at the lake yesterday we woke to thunderstorms this morning.  Instead of writing the day off as one of those cooped-up kids crazy days, I began coming up with ways to occupy my two year old that somehow included my 2 1/2 month old.  I decided to do the “stained glass” crayon shavings project.  You just put some crayon shavings between 2 sheets of waxed paper and melt the crayon.  Some people use an iron (on top of a towel) but my oven was still warm from baking something so I just put it on a pan, put a casserole dish on top to flaten and let it sit in the oven for 5 minutes.

Chloe really enjoyed looking up at the colors under the light.  Later we will tape them to the window where they will look better in the sun.

Soon the weather cleared and I let Andrew go outside to stomp in a puddle.  May as well let boys be boys.
