Here is the Challenge February is almost over so let's start March 1st of day 1 of 30 on 30 challenge.
It can be playing games,talking to them doing something they want to do as long as you spend 30 minutes a day with them. Please leave comments and tell me what you did that day. My son and I as we walk to school have a habit of breaking out in a random dance. It's cute makes him laugh that's all I want is to see him smile. Christopher loves to play hide and seek with us no matter what time of day it is he always wants to hide before one of us including the Mickey the cat finds him.Just hearing him laugh and smile is a blessing in itself. Check out 30 on 30 here are some of my favorite ones

This is really fun to do with the kids. Justin did this first in boy scouts.You take that white thing which I have no idea what it is called but you wrap your yarn around it one way then other way cut and tie. Make sure you tie it in the middle so it doesn't come undone. You can play with them in the house without the worry of having to clean up the mess of snow. We also used them in the houses I clean for decor.
My boys and I are done with 30 days of play for 30 minutes. The last seven days have been a wonderful experience for us. I guess the one thing they can take away from this is that I will always be there for them. Steve and I take pride in being parents. We do whatever it takes to stay involved with our children no matter what.
Day 26: We played board games
Day 27: The PlayStation was never turned off thanks to black ops.
Day 28: We made moon sand again.
Day 29: Justin and I made an egg project for school.
Both eggs were soaked in vinegar. One egg has red food coloring in it. We let them sit for five days.

Day 23: This was fun until it started to rain not to mention almost getting ate alive by the bugs. We made it! We made sidewalk chalk. It is really easy to do just get a few bowls to separate the colors. Add
2 Tablespoons of corn starch in each bowl. About 5 drops of food coloring and water maybe 3 tablespoons. Mix and take the kids outside to paint. Paint brushes or fingers which ever you want. It washes off so don't worry just have fun. We made three colors. The green was the best.

This past weekend was great for once I guess we relax. Steve and Justin rip apart the boat so we can take it out. Christopher and I made bashing cotton balls.
You will need:
Flour and water mix it equal almost like a thick pancake mix. Add some food coloring. We did three colors. Since I'm blogging on my phone the pics will be at the bottom.
Mix and dip
You will need a cookie sheet cover it with wax paper. Set the covered cotton balls on the cookie sheet bake for 45 minutes at 150.
The boys had a lot of fun. Justin came in just in time for the bashing with toy hammer's.

This afternoon was a bit intense after Justin and I finished up his morning studies. Part of my 30 minutes of fun for 30 days Justin and I made everyone have a shaving cream fight outside in the front yard in the rain. It was a little bit confusing for Christopher. He had no idea what was going on. He was looking at all of us like we were crazy. I haven't had a shaving cream fight since fourth grade. It was really fun we spelled like old guys. It left a tingle on us. It got in my mouth thanks to Jay and Steve. It doesn't taste good at all. It was a excellent lunch break. I think it's a must try for anyone.

This morning we decided to go ahead and try to make silly putty. You need 2 ounces of glow in the dark paint which you can buy from any craft store. A cup of elmer's glue and liquid starch. Which is found in the laundry aisle in Walmart. Mix it all in a bowl. Instead of using a measuring cup I just added a bottle of glue in a bowl with a little bit of starch. If it's to sticky add starch. If it's to stringy add glue to get the right consisteny you want. All you do is mix and have fun. It kept my boys busy till lunch. It was a lot of fun as you can tell from the pictures. You can also store it in a ziploc bag up to 2-4 weeks if you wanted to.

You will need 2 cups or
1 1/2 frozen strawberries
1 frozen Banana
1/2 cup of 1% or lower milk
1/2 cup vanilla lowfat yogurt
Honey to taste
The secret is that the fruit is frozen so you don't have to use ice. I find that when you use ice it makes it a little too watery. Just mix it in your blender or ninja which is awesome. I love my ninja! Enjoy

1/2 cup of salt
1/2 cup of flour
a bowl to mix in
add water to make almost like a play dough. If your finger's get all messy just add some more flour to your hands. Then make it into a ball push down and make your imprint. Bake it for 3 hours at 200 degrees. I'm thinking about just painting the hand prints so they can stand out. I also wrote my boys name and year on them to before I bake. Give it a try and tell me what you think?

I love to hear my children laugh. The sound's of little feet as they run across the kitchen floor is priceless. Yesterday we played hide and seek almost all day. We also took turns making funny faces at each other.
To end our night we watch Alf which is the greatest show ever made.

My kids and I do a lot of things together like play with Lego's. Today was one of those days. I have found that being apart of 30 mintues of playing for 30 days with the kids is a whole lot of fun. I have created a list of 100 things we can do this summer for all of us. I get a kick out of checking things off. I don't know why but its fun mostly because we can say we did that with pride.

If you try to play twister with a one year old its a lot of fun. Justin and I really put it to the test tonight. I love family night. After laughing till our belly hurt it was time to play guess who. Christopher knocked it off the table. He then ran off with our cards. He ate bob and another one so I gave him some chips and salsa we were then all good to get on with the game. I hate that one of the questions you have to ask is if they are black or white. It just seems wrong to me. I guess that is just me another post for another time.
