I still had so many water beads I had to come up with another activity to use them in. Thus, the water bead smashing activity was born!!!!
We went to the yard for this activity. Used chalk to draw some numbers on the gate. These were our targets. I would call out the numbers and Caleb would hit them with the water beads. You can do variations of this – letters, sum, difference, etc.
He even drew his own number to hit.
Balancing and throwing at the same time.
Smashed water beads.
Caleb had so much fun and it was easy to clean up.
We hosed down the gate.
And swept the smashed beads into the gutter.
A fun learning activity and great for releasing stress and pent up anger! Hahaha!
I bought these magnets for a song at the local flea market. I thought magnet investigation would be a fun activity for Caleb. I provided him with various things to test his magnet on.
He surprised me during this activity by creating with the magnets instead!
Earphones! Hahaha! This boy cracks me up.
I urged him to go around the house to see which things, objects, appliances his magnet would stick to. He did this for a while and went back to “creating” instead.
Look! A number 8!
His creative juices were flowing! Why would stand in the way of that? Haha! Let’s try again tomorrow 😉
