It was a hit with him. It did look like water and fish swimming in it, if you used your imagination. Little guys can do that, thank goodness.
To add a bit more fun to the "birthday cake" idea, I gave him a can of spray whipped cream to add to the top. This was a new concept to him and he quickly learned to control the nozzle, adding more whipped cream than you can imagine. Okay...it was his birthday and birthdays are exceptions to the rules...right??? Another easy, quick and inexpensive way to celebrate a child's birthday. It has been a long day and I am tired. I usually don't post twice on one day, but I thought I'd share this "cake" idea. Good night!! ps. the man that was hot glued to the edge of the bowl, came right off when pressure was applied and it did not hurt the glass bowl
