Of course I'm like any other grandma and thoroughly enjoy it when I have my grandkids around.

A few weeks ago they decided to come spend the day.  We love to get messy and make lots of  experiements.  We made the flour and baby oil version of playdoh.  After molding and making a total mess they opted to make a volcano out of all the doh.   Inside the volcano we "just had to" make vinegar and baking soda eruptions.  We only used a full box of baking soda and 1/2 gallon of vinegar and lots of food coloring!  Yes!  What a mess and what fun!

After the flour, baby oil, vinegar, baking soda, cookie sheets and all the yuk was cleaned off the table the kids got to have their grand finale of shaving creme.  They covered the whole table,  dug out all of the small toys including hot wheels and played for almost an hour creating racetracks, villages and more. 

Even though this was messy it was very inexpensive play.  They won't be wanting to do this as much as they get older, but for now, we made some memories.  How about you?  What are some fun things you do when you have your grandkids with you?
