Our delicious artwork

Yesterday, I let my kiddos go crazy with pudding. That's right...we painted our bodies and each other with chocolate pudding! At first, I think my kids thought I had gone totally mad, but after a few minutes they totally dove in full force!

Well, it took Riley a while before he was convinced he wanted to participate.

But after watching everyone else have fun...he decided to give it a try too!

Corban did a great job covering his entire body in chocolate!

Sophie was more interested in painting every one else!

And sweet Hudson was the poor beneficiary of Sophie's beautiful masterpiece!
He didn't seem to mind at all though!

The adorable artist herself!

Miss "A" was more interested in eating the pudding than painting with it ;)!

And yes..even I got in on some of the fun!

My three cuties!

After everyone was thoroughly covered from head to toe in pudding,

it was time to cranked on the hose and sprinklers.

I think everyone had just as much fun getting clean again!

Yummy!!! Good thing the Bruce's don't own a dog! ;-) Love the first pic of Riley...so unsure!

You always have some of the most creative fun things to do with your kids. I wish I could be so laid back. All your kids look so happy and are having so much fun.

I'm LOL at Celia's comment because that is SO true...our kids would be licked clean by Zoe...not quite as fun as rinsing off in the hose!
Glad that you guys had fun!! Love all of the pictures!!

Oh my goodness!

I thought the crayon craft was good that I did the other day--this beats that by a mile!

Next sunny day....chocolate pudding, here we come! :)

I did that with my kiddos last summer and they loved it!

Terri said...

Well, I never!!! (My first thought was about all the ants that would be attracted by this particular activity.) But how totally fun for your kids!!! You are officially the best mom EVER!!! Blessings!
