Keeping on with Valentine's decorations, we made a trip to Michael's and the Dollar Store. We finally got those cool water beads for Sophie (and I, why deny it?) to play with. They were a big hit. Sophie played with them for a looong time, squeezing, scooping, pouring, ''making hearts for daddy''.
They are full of bouncy fun. The only problem is exactly that: they bounce so much that they always end up on the floor, and I worried our dog, Oscar, would try to eat them. Well, I needn't worry about the beads, but unfortunately, the poor pieces of the new puzzle that had ended up on the floor were not as lucky...
Sophie wanted flowers to put in the beads, so we cut a few Camellias and put them in vases.
terrariums'' (they keep better than the plant ones, I can tell you that!)
I also cut hearts out of some of Sophie's drawings and made a garland to tie around a tree. I think Sophie liked the surprise.
