In which, I am an attentive mother for one hour
I finally found the perfect bubble solution recipe!
6 c. water (distilled works best)
1/2 c. Joy or Dawn
1 tbsp. baking soda
1/2 c. cornstarch
Even Bruno was able to make Gimungo bubbles. Huge hit.
Then we played Balloonminton... you put a little bit of water into a balloon, then blow it up the rest of the way. The result is a balloon with a little weight to it, which you can have great fun either hitting with old badminton rackets, or just kicking or tossing around.
After all this entertainment you'd think the children would be good to go, well attended-to and nourished and ready to be by themselves for awhile. But no, they were like, "What's next?" Insatiable little beasts.
Cute beasts, anyway.
