Victoria Day weekend is always a favourite as it marks the final countdown to summer! It's the boost we all need right now to get through the next few weeks as we remain hopeful for a return to more normal times ahead. In the meantime, let's wash away our worries this long weekend with these fun family activities
Step 1 - Remove the basket from your salad spinner and place it on top of a paper plate. Trace around the bottom of the basket and cut out the circle that you traced. This forms the base for the art project. Place the basket back into the salad spinner and set your paper plate circle inside.
Step 2 - Using the acrylic or craft paint bottles, squeeze several colours of paint onto the paper plate. The more colours used the more vibrate the final product will be.
Step 3 - Now the fun begins. Ensure the spinner lit is closed tightly. Have your child start spinning. The faster you can get the spin going, the more create the art will be. Once you’ve worked your salad spinner up to a good speed, release the handle and let it slow down until it stops spinning. Then, remove the lid to see your creation!
To start, you’re going to need to fill some balloons up with water. You can do this using a hose or sink, and can fill as many balloons as you want (probably at least 6 is a good amount). Tie the balloons once you’ve filled them.
Next, find a good spot in your yard or a nearby park to tie a clothesline between two trees. You can also use a strong length of rope if no clothesline is available. Feel free to do this in just one place, or many places around the yard, depending on what you prefer.
Once the clothesline (or rope) is secure, you’ll want to attach the balloons by tying them to the clothesline (or rope) at their ends.
Find a big stick and start hitting the balloons, and soon enough your backyard will become a waterpark!
