30 days to hand on play challenge - Day 8

In an effort to find ways to play, and thus connect with Ethan, I was very please to find this challenge at the Hands On as we Grow site. I'm joining a little late (day 8) but am excited nonetheless.

Today is water play day!

A few bowls with water and water colour added (red, blue, yellow)
Some kitchen utensils like spoons, cups etc

Today we were playing inside as it was rainy. If thats the case, no problem, just keep some towels nearby for excess water. Dont freak out about the little splashes - its bound to happen!

The challenge for moms today is to spend AT LEAST 15 minutes of engaged playtime with your child. No phones, TV or distractions. Do it!

This was a great playful learning experience as I could show ethan about colours and colour mixing.

Have fun, and let me know how it goes with your playtime!
