Family Time Calendar: Get Smart - iVillage

This simple project can be enjoyed by big and little kids alike. Best part: There's no cleanup necessary.


What you'll need:

  • Cup with water
  • Paintbrushes


What you'll do:

Take your spelling and alphabet practice outdoors. Find an interesting place to sit that's also a smooth surface, such as the deck or front walk. Start painting the alphabet, and your kids will be offering up the next letter in no time, if not writing it themselves. And mistakes don't matter -- they just evaporate. If only it were that simple in the rest of life. Try writing your child's name and guessing which letter will evaporate first.
