Sidewalk painting

Well we had a slight disagreement on the playground today. The kids wanted to get messy with mud and water and I....didn't.

Eventually I lost the battle. They won me over with their enthusiastic delight of every splat! their mud pies made on the sidewalk, and I consented to filling a large buck with water.

On the way I grabbed a box of chalk thinking maybe I could get them interested in drawing some machines rather than coating themselves in mud.

No, that did not work.

Of course a number of woodchips went in the bucket, a bit of mud and then the chalk took a dip. I scooped the chalk out of the water so that it didn't dissolve and this is what we discovered!

Chalk paint!

So vibrant and fun! and just a bit messy.

Sprouting Spring Onions

These last couple weeks I've been experimenting with sprouting spring onions. It is SO EASY! You simply save the bulbs of the spring onions while your preparing them, preserving just a little bit a green above the white.
Soak them in a cup of water to help revive them. 

Plant them in a pot in a sunny spot and water once a day.

 This is after 10 days.

 I've already planted another round and I'm allowing the first set to regrow after I clipped off the tops once for stir-fry. They are so fresh and delicious!
