Monday are very busy here. First of all, girls have to deployed to school on time, and that is a very big achievement after a weekend. Second, boys have play dates with little buddies. Today, I managed to make my signature chocolate chip, oat and walnuts cookies, but I didn’t have a chance to take a photo of that project…too many hungry munchkins. Also Oliver requested a play dough, so play dough day we had .
I made 4 different colors of play dough. I love to use recipe from ‘Mudworks’ by MaryAnn F. Kohl . I like also add a bit of especial oils, lemongrass of peppermint, that usually prevents little people form eating eat and makes house smell really nice, which sort of helps balance the mess.
Yes, there was a lot of play dough creations today. Amelie decided to call it her project for today- Fantastic Play Dough Foods .
