water fun and some thoughts


I saw the idea somewhere and on a hot day, during our vacation in Switzerland, I mentioned this "sprinkler-bottle" to my parents. Not even an hour later my father emerged from the basement with a finished "sprinkler bottle" for the kids. They loved it!
Connect a plastic bottle to a whose, punch some holes and turn on the water!




So what more? My husband is still kind of immobile because of his teared achilles tendon. We spent almost 3 weeks in Switzerland- visiting my parents, sisters, brothers in law, nieces, grandmother, friends... Although we could not do everything we wanted because of the injury of my husband, we had a good time. Now I am left with hundreds of pictures and so far no time to sort them out....
Anyway. I am not sure how and if I will continue this blog for much longer. It is fun but it's also time consuming... So we will see.
Enjoy summer! (I am already looking forward to colder days.)

Piven again


Not only at home we made portraits in "Piven"-style (see here)- last week I also saw the portraits the kids made in kindergarten. I love them!





an invitation


The picture is not very good... I had no time and it was already night...
Anyway- this is the invitation we made for Neomi's birthday party. I printed templates for boxes (if you want, you can use the one I made below), Neomi added some drawings, we cut and glued them and filled them with some cookies.



what to do with a cardboard box...


What can you do with a cardboard box? It's endless fun and hours of playing...
The girls enjoyed to pull Yotam around in a box- like a slide on the snow- and he obviously enjoyed it too...



We collected cardboard boxes for Neomi's birthday party. The kids spent their time sitting inside the boxes... they were beds and boats and trains and shops and all kinds of other things.


And on Neomi's birthday the kids built a castle with the boxes. Of course Neomi was the queen...
