Made a underwater-scope!

I just made an underwater "observer" for my kids.  Take a Pringles can and poke a hole in the metal end.  Use packing tape to seal the lid end onto the can.  Take it out and look in the puddles!

Now we just need to wait for the tadpoles and other cool spring critters to come out!  Yay!

I'll let ya'all know how long the thing lasts, but with the way we go through Pringles lately, it doesn't really matter to us if it doesn't last long!

And here are the boys learning how to use it (soapy water in a bucket with cool plastic toys for them to "find").

Very cool idea!  The girls will love this.  I'll buy them a can and try to stay away from it.  Pringles are one of my all-time weaknesses!

They are our weakness too. They have been on sale so often here that we've been buying them way too often. But they are great to throw into a hiking day lunch, so win win!

If they keep going the way they have so far this morning, they'll be soggy by evening! Lol

 I'm another confessed Pringles fan...such a fan, in fact, that I will eat their sour cream & onion even though I'm allergic to onions and I swell up with hives every time I eat it..lol
