Fun Play Date and Popsicle Recipe!

What!?!  It’s Thursday already!  Holy cow this week is flying by!

Today went by pretty fast as well.   We started with a lazy morning once again with the Love Nugget sleeping in until 7:45.  Good thing we haven’t had to rush out the door to SS because we wouldn’t make it with his sleeping habits lately!  While he snoozed away, I decided to make a few things for our play date today.

I started with the easiest homemade finger paint ever that I found on this blog.

It sort of looked like Cristco before adding food coloring.

The only ingredients are corn starch, sugar, salt, water and food coloring so if they put it in their mouth (as most toddlers do) it’s okay!

Then I boiled some spaghetti noodles and mixed them with food coloring in zip lock bags.

The Love Nugget helped with this 🙂

I made some avocado hummus and pita chips to snack on,

plus some jello and popsicles for the kiddos 🙂

(super simple popsicle recipe to follow)

The kids had so much fun playing in the water,

finger painting and sidewalk chalk painting (not pictured but was just a mixture of cornstarch, water and food coloring)

They also sifted through rice for bugs and lizards,

colored,

and of coarse… ate popsicles!

We had a great time watching the kids have so much fun!  The Love Nugget is exhausted and passed right out when he was put to bed.

Here’s the recipe for the popsicles.  Seriously so easy and you can use whatever fruits or greens you’d like.  They didn’t seem to notice there was spinach in them 🙂

Super Easy Green Popsicles

1 large frozen banana

1/2 cup blackberries

1 cup frozen cantelope

1 cup organic spinach

Puree all ingredients together in a food processor until mixed well but don’t over process to the point where the fruit is defrosting too much.  You want it to be thick enough for the popsicle sticks to stand in.  Pour mixture into mini muffin tins and stick a popsicle stick in.  If they don’t stand up, pop into the freezer for about 30 minutes then stick the popsicle sticks in.  Freeze for several hours or overnight.
