Family Fun

One evening this summer, our church hosted a family fun night.  It was just starting to get into the hundred-degree temperatures by then, so we enjoyed hamburgers and hot dogs inside the air-conditioned church hall, and then ventured out to see what kind of family fun was on offer.

Toby made a beeline for the messiest stuff around - sidewalk paints made from shaving foam mixed with liquid watercolour.
Look at all these pretty colours!

Let's see how many I can mix up.

Don't eat it, Toby!

Fun for adults, too.

Busy painting.
Fortunately there were some water slides available as well!  He was a bit small for the proper slide, but enjoyed the horizontal one.





We liked the shaving foam idea so much we tried it again at home.  I couldn't find the liquid watercolours, but we had some washable paint which worked OK.  It definitely falls into the category of, "is it really worth the clean-up" activities, though.




I think it's worth it!
