On a recent hot day when the sun was out and flooding the back yard … yes I know, hard to believe that foggy Monterey had a hot sunny day, right … we decided to keep the fair-skinned ones indoors to play until the shade provided a little more protection outdoors.


To their amusement, we blew up helium balloons.

They made everything turn green and yellow  – including each other.

Rainy Day Activity for kids

They jumped, so, so high to reach their balloons.

indoor fun for kids

They showed their balloons some love and pulled funny faces.

Such a simple thing.

2 helium balloons. 

Providing hours of entertainment.

Disclosure: Last year at BlogHer ’09 I received a coupon for a free Balloon Time box.  A year later, we keep these on hand, tucked away safe and sound, for when moments like these arise.
