Scoop the Limes - Toddler Water Play

Scoop the Limes. - Also known as Grandma Bought too Many Limes at Costco and Now we Need to Find Some Uses.

It’s true.

Sometimes the best activities come from ideas that happen organically.

Here, my mom purchased more limes than she could account for.

Since the mission was to scoop and transfer, I also knew that no limes would be wasted. After water play, we used the limes in our next 37 glasses of soda water. 😆

Even better?

What happened as my boys played, was simply magical. We began the water play using a ladle, and finished up with some other fabulous variations. All taken from our outdoor storage bin, of course!

Find Your Name; A Simple Breakfast Invitation

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I’ve got your Breakfast Invitation secret weapon.

Kids love seeing their name. Like, loooooooooove seeing their name.

Names are a beautiful representation of who we are.

Let’s use names to help our children grasp a marker, identify letters, and hold their hand steady to design a circle as they find their name.
