Having fun with my girl!! We’ve been working with our letters but I thought it was time for something new. Check out what we did today…
I don’t know which one of us had more fun! A little secret of mine. I think I should have been a chemist, because I get such a kick out of alchemy-esk projects. This one was awesome!!! Guess what all our baby/toddler friends are going to get as gifts this year? If your child is like mine, they love play dough but every now and then a stray piece finds it way into a curious mouth. All the ingredients here are from my kitchen and if anyone gets the munchies they’ll just be getting a super salty mouthful that I’m sure will be spit right out. And if ingested…a tummy ache at worst.
Measuring out the ingredients…”Is it at the line Mummy?”
Stirring carefully…What’s great about this stuff is it doesn’t really get hot. Kira lifted the spoon just as I was reaching for something and a big gulp spilled on the back of my hand. I was braced for the pain but nothing. It was very warm but not hot at all. Great if the little ones spill it on themselves. or it splashes while being stirred.
I’m going to save you lots of time and maybe some taxed brain cells. 1/2 of a tablespoon = 1 1/2 teaspoons. Maybe some of you are laughing at me right now but that took me a moment and a little help from my iPhone. Sound familiar Mum?
Next step…KNEADING!!! Kira took this step very seriously!!
Very seriously!!! “This is hard work Mum!”
Of course we had to try pink first. This is after about 5 mins of kneading.
A quick hand-roll into a ball and VOILA!!!!
Start to finish about 15 mins!!! Even with Kira helping. We can’t wait to make more. And this project is another great “learn your colors” exercise.
Thanks again Pinterest! What did we do before you?
