The last few days we've had some crazy wind in Denver. This crazy wind took out two fence posts in my backyard. I couldn't get them fixed before tot school today so we needed to stay inside for the day. We did a slight swap of tot school themes and ended up doing Zoo Animals today. I LOVE doing zoo animals. We have some fun blow up zoo animals and some finger puppets. We have puzzles and books galore. It was so much fun!
We made a zoo out of Lego Duplos, read "Goodnight, Gorilla" about a zillion times, and pretended to be animals ourselves. I made some tear-free bubbles and put the bubble blower up high. I LOVED the bubble solution, but it's residue was crazy. Homemade tear free bubbles: 3/4 c water, 1/4 c tear free baby wash, 3 TBSP corn syrup. The bubbles work amazingly well and there wasn't a single incident where it got in eyes and made anyone upset. It did, however, leave an interesting sticky residue on hair, toys, and the carpet. I'll definitely use it again, but outside for sure. Those of you that have kids that played here today you may find this crazy residue on their little clothes and in their hair. It should wash out easy peasy.
