Ramona Was So Wise

In one of the Ramona Quimby books, Ramona has the brilliant idea to give her bratty toddler neighbor a box of tissues as a present. It is a big hit and entertains the child for quite a while. I love the Ramona books, and thought about this part of the story the other day while at the grocery. For $2 I bought a box of tissues for both of my kids and let them go to town. Ramona was right, it was just about the best present a 2 year old could ever get.

Colored Ice Cubes

I apparently used too much food coloring when I made these because by the time they had all melted, all of our hands looked liked tie-dyed t-shirts. The kids played with these until they were down to the very last little icy pebbles. They put them in the sandbox, watering can, stacked them, threw them, and tried to eat them.
