I bought 2 gallons of dirt for $2 at Walmart and dumped them into the kiddie pool. I added some bowls and scoops. It played for an hour and then I dragged him in.
We made a wind sock. He colored and tore the streamers. Very easy, summery craft.
This week's box was dinosaurs.
I used some dirt, aquarium plants, aquarium cave, and dollar store dinos.
He loved the dinos.
We also played karate.
I'm working VBS this week and I got all of these 2-3 year old boys to sit still for an hour and a half and two babies to sleep. I felt like Mary Poppins.
