I’m working part time during the summer – mainly because i am still not employed for next year – but when I’m not working, this is what we do around the house.
Step 1: Tell kid excitedly that you have an activity for him.
Step 2: Collect supplies. In this case – cornstarch, water, and food coloring.
Step 3: Drag kid away from ipad.
Step 4: Dump cornstarch, food coloring, and water into a muffin tin.
Step 5: Paint sidewalk.
Step 6: Distract kid for almost an hour.
Step 7: Wait a day, give child squirt bottle. Enjoy your hour of peace as he happily squirts all of the paint off the sidewalk.
