the mushiness. the squishiness. it really is therapeutic to run your fingers through these globs of goo. not like i spent a good chunk of time this morning doing just this. ha. and the bonus is the play dough smells springy and fruity because they are made with jell-o. the girls and i made the four colors above after school two weeks ago. we kept them in air tight containers and we- i mean they-have been playing with them since. they have been using kitchen tools, like butter knives and forks to let their imaginations soar. i'm a big fan of this recipe. it's inexpensive. your kiddies get to participate in the entire process of making the play dough. and then they get to enjoy the fruits of their labor while playing with it for weeks afterwards. here is the recipe from modern parents messy kids.
this is my creative outlet. my family and i followed our hearts to maine and moved to an old house outside of portland a year ago. when i am not taking care of my twin girls, you might find me writing little love notes to my husband, sipping on green tea, taking photos of nature's beauty and dreaming of well curated spaces. it's the simple pleasures in life that make me happy.
