I just hate summer here in Israel and now even more.. breastfeeding and carrying a baby does not help much.
I am trying to come up with some activities for the girls for inside (when it is getting unbearable outside) and for outside (well- this has to have a connection with water to cool down)...
The other day I did some drawing with crayons with Neomi while Helen and Yotam were napping. It's something I remembered that I loved doing as a kid myself:
|fill an area with colours so that no white of the paper is showing anymore|
|draw with black crayon all over the coloured area and then you can scratch away the black colour with a toothpick (or a pencil/ match...)|
|place things inside frames- we used smurfs, playmobile, lego... you can also add sails. Fill the frames with water and place in the freezer until the water is frozen.|
|we placed the ice boats in our kids pool. The small ones sunk fast (not enough ice), the bigger ones floated for a while. Because of the heat the ice melted pretty fast.|
