You Capture :: Play

The assignment this week over at You Capture was Play.
A favorite cure for boredom over here
is for Griffin to transform the bathroom into a chemistry lab.
We have food coloring, powder, bubble baths, cups and spoons in all sizes.
I simply fill up the sink and let him do "science experiments".
It keeps him busy for at least half an hour at a time.
As I walked past the restroom to put away some laundry
I heard him playing in a sink full of red water.
He laughed manically and cackled...

I know exactly the laugh you mean, Dexter does the same one, except Dexter does his experiments in cafes/restaurants before we are about to leave by filling up glasses with leftovers - e.g. putting coffee, salt, tomato sauce etc into a glass/cup and trying (unsuccessfully I might add) to see if people will notice!!!

Boys are awesome! I have a feeling he's going to be creative like his Mommy!
You know, I was a total tomboy as a child and I once dissected a frog in our backyard. I think I'd barf if I did that today, but as a 8 year old I thought it was totally rad! :)

Love this picture. It always looks like you guys have so much fun.

That is great! I'll have to remember this tip. (although not till my youngest boy gets a little bigger. A 3yo and food coloring... um, no!)

My grandma used to let us play "potions" on the stove (heavily supervised) and it is definitely a great memory!
