I've had two nieces and a nephew here overnight. I'm exhausted! We made playdough from scratch. It's a recipe that was in a cookbook put together by my elementary school MANY years ago. I had to call my mom for it, but the kids had fun, though video games were a bigger draw. (Guess I'm getting old...)
To boiling water, add food color and oil. Add remaining ingredients and stir/knead until well-conbined. Add more flour if too sticky. Store in an air-tight container.
This came from the mom of a girl who was in the same grade as one of my brothers. Hearing her last name reminded me of stories of her "marrying" my brother on the playground in about 1st grade! Thanks Mrs. Ekkins for the recipe and trip down memory lane.
Also, the Birdie Bag is done!
I feel a sense of accomplishment, but feel a little guilty at it...there are a number of other projects I started in 2009 that are being neglected for new ones to be started in 2010. I suppose eventually I'll run out of newer projects, right?
I think it's time for a nap...
