Layers of colours

Well, the sunny spell I was raving about yesterday was short lived and here we are again watching the rain fall outside. Looking from a positive angle, staying in gave us a good opportunity to experiment with this idea I found over at the beautiful flax & twine blog. You can pretty much work it out by just looking at the pictures below but if you’d like more details drop by flax & twine for a complete tutorial. Once you’re there I highly recommend you take the opportunity to browse for other lovely crafts ideas and beautiful photography. My girls loved to colour the salt, pour it in the containers and watch the layers build up. They each filled two jars and had I more they would carry on doing it. It was actually hard to get them to stop! I’ll keep an eye out for jars of different shapes to add to the fun, this is an activity that we will certainly revisit many times. On this rainy day we also got started in making a birthday present for Papa. Don’t tell him!

Aquele sol todo de ontem desapareceu hoje e cá estamos de novo olhando a chuva pela janela. O lado positivo de ter ficado presa em casa foi que podemos experimentar com essa idéia que eu achei no lindo blog flax & twine. Você pode ver como funciona pelas minhas fotos, mas dê um pulinho no flax & twine para instruções mais detalhadas e lindas fotos. As meninas adoraram. Cada uma encheu dois vidrinhos e teriam continuado se tivéssemos mais. Estou de olho em vidros de diferentes formatos pois essa é uma atividade que vamos rvisitar muitas outras vezes com certeza. Nesse dia chuvoso nós também começamos a preparar o presente de aniversário do Papa. Não conta para ele não!
