Bramell, Party of Five: Fun with Pinterest

Fun with Pinterest

Of course, I have jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon. The problem is, I see all these things I'd like to make/try/cook, but never find the time to do it.  Well, we had a rainy weekend a couple of weeks ago and  being cooped up in the house is not something that my busy-body kids enjoy.   On Saturday, we spent a couple of hours playing at the germ-infested mall play area.  On Sunday, I pulled out the instructions for my very first Pinterest-inspired project:  homemade play dough.

We waited until the little ones were napping, then Big Sis and I got started.

These are all the ingredients; things I already had in my kitchen. Even better!

Big Sis chose to make a batch of purple first.  She likes to pour in the ingredients and stir for me.  She also learned that mixing red and blue together makes purple---educational, too!

This is the finished product above.  Below, is our second batch--pink, of course.  

Each recipe made a very big portion, and the kids played with it all afternoon.  It kept the kids busy and still, which was nice.  I did have some clean up when they finished, but that's normal for us. The post where I found the recipe is HERE if you want to check it out.  I give our first Pinterest project a big thumbs up!
