I moved the dining room table out of the kitchen and brought in our water table filled with snow. I wasn't bundling the kids up to go out and play. It was cold. I didn't want to be outside.
They scooped it up with their cups and pitchers. They dumped it out and made the little wheel go round and round. Like a record, baby. (:
They just put their hands in it and felt it.
And they dumped it on the floor. Lilly also used it as a cooler for her sippee cup.
They ate some.
And then as it melted into water on the floor, Lilly went and got a wash cloth (when really, in all honesty, it was a towel's job) and with every drop of water she cleaned up she would sigh loudly and say, "Oh bubby!" like she had no part in the mess.
We had a little obstacle course with the dining room chairs in the living room. The kids loved going across and under them. In case you are wondering, I didn't try that out...pretty sure I would've gotten stuck.
