At hubby’s boss’ 4th of July party, my boys were given some water guns. In true boy fashion they have loved them and asked to play with them frequently ever since.
After being inspired by ikatbag’s Germ Warfare, I decided last week that we could have a monster shootout!
I glued blank paper to an empty cereal box and cut out several monsters. K dictated what kind of faces they should have (and was very particular about the mouths especially…no smiling monsters!). Older kids can do the cutting and decorating.
I then cut out a narrow strip from the cereal box and cut two slits in it. Two slits were also cut in the bottom of each monster. (The slits are a little hard to see, but I think it conveys the point well enough…sorry he’s presoaked).
The strips were then inserted into the monster’s slits to create stands.
Take all the monsters outside, line them up and have your little guy or gal wipe them out! K shot at the monsters with squeals of excitement every time I set them back up…then I got sprayed :). This was a great way for K to work on fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination while having a wonderful time.
