So we had a few days cramped up in the house and made the best of it with two fun activities this week.
We made three types of playdough: chocolate, gingerbread, and coffee (recipe included).
The girls helped stir the first batch (don't worry, I the burner was off for the picture).
And then were on kneading duty.
I wish you could have heard their voices singing their beloved Noodlebug song "Play Dough Day"
Squeeze it! Squash it! Squishy Play!Sadly, I was up to my elbows in flour and salt so I didn't manage to grab the video camera. But I did make a snowman (also featured in the Noodlebug song).
Mash it! Smash it! Play dough day!
Coffee Play Dough
- 1/2 C Salt
- 1 C Flour
- 1 Tbs Oil
- 2 tsp Cream of Tartar
- 3/4 Cup Instant Coffee Granules
- 1 Cup Water (or in place of granules 1 cup very strongly brewed coffee)
For our second and super fun Toddler Activity, we gave the girls some glow sticks in the bathtub. Hysterical fun!
And the best part: Sedryn absolutely adored the glow sticks, too! I never would have thought to give my baby a glow stick without toddlers in the house :)
