4 Weeks of Frugal Family Fun: Green Smoothies, Sidewalk Chalk, Snow Treasure, and a game of Old Maid (Day 6)
We had a very laid back Friday full of lots of frugal family fun. Here’s a little peek into our day:
We made our favorite Green Monster Smoothies.
So good and refreshing — especially after my daily run!
We went outside and played with sidewalk chalk on the deck.
We were hoping that maybe we could make the Fizzy Sidewalk Chalk by spraying the drawings with vinegar as outlined here. But apparently it only fizzes if you make Homemade Sidewalk Chalk Paint with baking soda. So we’ll have to try that idea again sometime soon!
But everyone had fun drawing and spraying, regardless!
While the children played, I read a few chapters of one of our current read-alouds — Snow Treasure. We are loving this book, by the way!
After playing outside, we came in and Kathrynne and I played a rousing game of Old Maid together.
