And here's our art project:
We played with homemade playdough, in case you can't make out my beautiful scupture (ha), that's a mommy, daddy and two baby birds in a nest. Playing with dough really is just me trying to make things that the toddler requests... not always pretty.
Here's our dough recipe: combine 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, 1/2 a cup of salt, 1 tablespoon cream of tartar and some food colouring to a saucepan and heat until warm. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of flour. Stir then knead until smooth. Store in closed container in fridge and it will last a really long time (ours is 2 months old at this point).
And one last thing: yesterday was my Mom's birthday... (happy birthday again Mom!). I made her these pillows for her couch. They are so soft and squishy! Apparently mom put them on the bed last night and Dad was complaining about having to remove them all before sleep.... men...
