When the pasta was all ready to bring out back for the “big surprise” as I phrased it to my toddler, the rain began to pour down. It was a mild day so I asked my boys, “Who wants to get soaked??” They jumped with glee. We put our rain gear on (sort of) and raced outside.
Our sensory tub from last week was still available for play in the backyard. So I took the spaghetti noodles, dumped them into the soil filled container and shouted, “Oh, yuk! Worms! Everywhere!”
What young boy would not jump with absolute excitement! It was pretty awesome.
When the rain really started to pour down, our garden tub became a garden soup.
Then the boys got really into it and by “it” I mean the tub!
I am hoping the animals and birds take care of the pasta. I have yet to look out back this morning. No matter, though, because we had loads of fun stirring, throwing, squeezing, pulling, and, alas, at one point, eating the worms in our tub. Smiles all around…
