A little pink goes a long way

It's amazing what you can do with a Super Hero shirt and pink accessories, don't you think?

Have you ever painted with ice cubes? It's really fun! When Jake had his crafts play date, I made colored ice cubes using food coloring and stuck popsicle sticks in them. We used good quality water color paper, to "paint" with. Once the ice cubes start to melt, they have a watercolor paint like effect as they soak into the paper. It's a great project for little ones, because if they're tempted to eat the "paint" big's just food coloring.

Tie-Dyed I nuts?

One of Jake's best friends just turned 4, and we've invited him over for a craft party (for two) this weekend. I've been thinking of all different projects they could make, but have been thinking it might be fun to try tie-dying. They're probably a little young for the project, but I came across this tutorial from the Family Fun site that involves spray bottles (some friends and family members may know how fond Jake is of spray bottles), so I thought this might be fun to try. No doubt I'll end up dying both children pink in the process, but I think they'd be very proud of the t-shirts they could make.

Thoughts? Nutty, or go for it?
