Apart from the rain and the cold, we have had our fair share of illness around here lately and so we have been spending more time indoors.
Today I thought I would show you a few of the inside activities my kids have been getting up to lately.
|Good old home made playdough (recipe below) - joint birthday celebration cake for their toys apparently!|
|We have discovered a new way to make pom poms from the book 'Adventures in Pom Pom Land' that Evie found at the library.|
|Hours of fun baking and decorating biscuits.|
|We made some new table placemats with some of their paintings.|
|The children made themselves a workspace in my workroom - I love the concentration on their faces.|
|These lucky gnomes came out of the workroom in very fine clothes!|
1 cup Flour
1 cup Warm water
2 tsp Cream of tartar
1 tsp Oil
1/4 Cup of salt
optional extra - a few drops of lavender essential oil
Mix all ingredients together in a pan. Stir over a medium heat until smooth.
It is fun to play with whilst still warm and the addition of a few drops of lavender smells wonderful and is quite calming.
