The Fourth of July

On the fourth, I was going to spend so much time doing stuff with the kids, and I got sick again. I don't know what my problem is, but I got sick with the same thing I had exactly a month ago. To tell you the truth, I am sick of being sick!!

I made these Super Foam-erator's that I saw on Creative Kismets Blog who had seen them on Betz White's Blog. The kids had a blast playing with them and so did a few other people!!

Jace wanted his head covered with foam and then he would run down the sidewalk leaving a trail of foam behind him.

Dad got into the picture, but only for a minute.

I was trying to make foam for Jace when I was attacked by Foam-erator's, Ezie and Mallory!

Mallory got my neighbor into the picture too! By the time the kids were done with Joyce she had a Beaufont type hairdo.

Anyway, these Foam-erators were fun and all we need to make them was a empty water bottle with the end cut off, a rag to put over the end, a rubber band to hold the rag on, a little dish soap and a little water. Betz White has all the instructions on her blog. Thanks Betz and Regina for posting this fun and cheap activity on your blogs! It was so much fun!!

I saw this and linked it too, but didn't actually try it. After seeing your pics, I'm gonna have to try this for my little neighbor girl.
