Instead, I thought I'd give you a peek at what the little people and I are doing today. Aside from raiding the library, turning the princess room into a fort and general fun-ness, we made salt dough.
Salt dough clay is super easy and very fun for kids. Kids really get a kick out of making things for themselves. My mom, who is a whiz with 3-5 year olds, routinely used to make salt dough clay with her class and it was always a bit hit. The best part is that you can color it however you'd like and either store it in a jar/bag for continual use OR you can bake it like a sculpture.
Here's the recipe:
3/4 c. salt
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. cooking oil
food coloring of choice (optional)
Well, I have a bunny & princess crown in the oven + three excited kids who are ready to PLAY! So that's all I have time for today. Maybe I'll update later with pictures of how the creations looked once baked. Have a wonderful day and as always, thanks for reading!
Oh- ps! A great snack is a piece of cheese + an apple slice + some lunch meat rolled up. I could eat 15 a day! Pin It
