So I have been dreaming up ways to keep them busy and happy! I have listed a few things we have done below.
2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 teaspoon oil
1/2 cup salt
In a pan mix all ingredients together, adding the food coloring last. Stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove the dough from the pan and knead until smooth. Add glitter at this point if you want to. To store place in a plastic bag or airtight container when cooled. The dough lasts for a long time.
We have decorated fairy cakes as you see in the pic.
Both rebels also love to make chocolate crispy cakes with mini marshmallows. Mmmmmm!
My daughter wants to go to the cinema, our tiny local picture house only does matinees at the weekend and as the kids are so young we have had a couple of practices at home.First they made their own popcorn cones. Then we filled them with microwave popcorn. We closed all the curtains in the living room and watched a DVD in the dark. We had a brief intermission to serve ice cream. And I realised that J probably is a little bit too young for a whole cinema showing.
playing in a huge tray of shaving foam is also a big hit - but not one for the faint hearted!If you fancy adding an idea of your own in the comments section please feel free to do so and while your at it why not include a shamless plug for your blog, shop or favourite item:)
