Baby it's cold outside!!!

is the hotest month of the year in the Southern parts of the world.
But the coldest month of the year in the Northern parts of the world...
It's when the temps are more likely to be in the
deep freeze degrees...
and while I wish it were like this out side...

It's not. No.
Not even close!
It is, however, like this out side...

So when it's to cold for little girls and...well...bigger...
antique kind of girls,
to go outside for walks and to the park and other such adventures...
we have to make our own.
So here are some of the things we have the most fun doing...
Hide and seek~

Playing house,
and race car/crash em up stroller Derby~

Water color painting,
and coloring~

But the one we have had the most fun with lately is this...

Salt clay~play dough

Easy to make~lasts a long time in a plastic bag~ and best of all~can become

Here is the "how to"
Gather up:
2 cups Really hot Water
(boiling if you want-but you will be putting your hands in it O.O)    
 3 TBSP Oil  
2 1/2 -3 cups Flour  
1/2 cup Salt
1 TBSP Alum
(food coloring if you want it)
Measure out all your dry stuff into a bowl. Then in a glass or metal bowl get that hot water in and then start adding the dry mix to it...(I start out with a wooden spoon then go to my hands).
You don't want it really sticky-but like a good bread dough consistency...
This is were you can add food coloring. Either color it all-or
color smaller balls different colors.

Have fun!

Smile and Remember;
We're fools whether we dance or not. So we might as well dance.
