Unplugged Project: Rockin' Out
Since I was drawing a blank with what to do for this week's theme, which was rocks, I did a good ol' Google search and came across this.
Perfect! A rock garden seemed just right for a toddler.
So, off we went to Grandma's house to collect some nice rocks!
We didn't have to go far...Grandma's driveway has plenty to choose from!
Here is Little Bit with her shiny red rock collecting pail (i.e. leftover Valentine's Day bucket). She's starting to lose interest at this point.
So, I helped her out a bit!
Once we had enough rocks we brought them inside for a good scrubbin'. I can tell she'll make an excellent dishwasher one day (yes, I'm ready to start delegating chores).
Back at home we got our supplies together to paint the rocks. Little Bit couldn't wait to get started!
And the painting commenced.
Once the rocks were dry, we "planted" them in a nearby flowerbed.
Tadaaa! Here we have a very blurry picture of our completed painted rock garden!
I really enjoyed this project. We were able to stretch it out over the span of a few days with each step being nice and short...perfect for a toddler's attention span! And, we got to spend time outside in the beautiful weather we had this week...awesome!
I can't wait to see what next week's theme will be. Sound like fun? Come join us!
