You Can’t Do That On The Front Lawn

Sometimes being a RiskyKid isn’t about doing anything risky at all; sometimes it’s about just doing something that is a lot of fun.

My kids love silly string. It makes a huge mess. The neighbor claims that it’s bad for the wildlife in the neighborhood. Shaving cream is expensive and burns your eyes. So I thought about it and came up with a great idea. Whip Cream fight! Since RiskyKids are also thrifty, I asked my friend, Heather, to pick up some whipped cream at Aldi’s. $1.49 a can. I told her to get twelve. You can never have too much.

I collected the neighborhood kids and explained the rules.
-We each get one can.
-You may not spray or be sprayed while on base.
-No hitting each other with cans.
-THERE IS NO CRYING IN WHIPPED CREAM FIGHTING!

How often do you get to say, “Shake your cans kids?”

It took longer to round up the neighborhood kids than it did to have the fight. But they loved it.

There was one casualty. I split my thumb open. It’s all fun and games till someone needs a band-aid. (I didn’t cry)
