So much fun, you can taste it

In the beginning, when the dining room was neat and the floor was clean...

Making spaghetti, while the nose is running...

Maybe not a great habit to get into, licking scissors..

A small picture of the messy floor, was it really worth it?
Okay, so I had a little fun and got a little creative. And, yes, I ate him!!

Genesis 1:21

So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Today I made play dough for the kids. It was great idea and one I have been wanting to try with them for a long time. Joseph has a really bad cold and I thought this might cheer him up. Sounds like a good plan, but what was I thinking? A boy with a runny nose, eating play dough and sharing it with his sister?! Yeah, I wasn't thinking!
So anyway, they did think it was pretty cool, except Bethany was upset that it wasn't "colors". Joseph made spaghetti and Bethany made Joe a cake. (With dolphins on it "because that's Daddy's favorite animal.'' I am sure he'll be happy to find that out about himself!)
They had fun. I watched as the mess grew and grew until I couldn't take it anymore! Next time, we WILL be playing with play dough outside. This recipe is really sweet, I was afraid they would get a stomach ache from eating too much. I have a different recipe I am going to try next time.

Frosting Play Dough
1 can frosting (any flavor) 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar 1 cup creamy peanut butter
Mix together until dough reaches desired consistency
Storage: When not using, MUST be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated. Next time you want to use it, let it come to room temperature for pliable dough.

Note: I don't know why anyone would want to reuse this stuff. After the kids have licked, slobbered and eaten, squished and mushed in between their fingers! No thanks! I'll pass on the germs!
