Earlier this week I realized that Shane and Marianne had never played with playdoh. How could I have let this fun activity slip my mind? Max and Alex loved playing with it when they were little and I knew for sure that Shane and Marianne would feel the same way, so I decided to remedy the situation and looked up a recipe. We used this one and boy has it been a hit! The little ones love it and Max even joined in on the fun and made a Spongebob head. You know you've done something right when your 14 (almost 15!) year old son gets in on the action. Ruben has been sculpting as well. His best work was a brain and a little pumpkin which I unfortunately didn't get pictures of. So, if you're looking for great winter/rainy day/any day activity and you don't already have playdoh, you should definitely make some!
Excuse the messy table...that's a real life photo :) And if you notice, our patio is a construction zone. I had to move everything out because their replacing all the wood siding on the exterior of our complex. It's going to look really nice when it's done but I'm praying all my plants survive. Here's what it looks like right now. Not too inviting is it?
What are your favorite fall/winter crafts that you enjoy with your kids or on your own? I've been getting my typical crochet bug now that the weather has cooled off. I'm thinking of making these for some Christmas gifts. And since I linked to Pinterest I'd like to add how much I enjoy it. It's really cool to see a fun craft and be able to save it in such an easy way. I know a lot of people think it's a huge waste of time (which it certainly can be) but I've made so many of the things that I pinned which I would have otherwise totally forgotten about. As far as I'm concerned, it's the perfect online organizing tool.
Have a great Sunday!
