Fun Friday: Play-dough and Drawing

Hey everyone! Today Sadie and I were supposed to go swimming with a friend. Well there were high chances of storms and the radar showed it was coming straight our way. So we decided to “rain check” (pun intended) and she went to work in her classroom instead. Well…as you could probably guess, it never did end up raining. Shocking right?!?! Well Sadie and I still wanted to have some fun so we (by we I really mean me) decided to start making Fridays-FUN FRIDAYS!!

FUN FRIDAYOh the adventures we'll go on together...

This heat is to unbearable to be out in but my child is OVER being inside. So today I decided to break out some of my old teaching ways and I got creative. I decided that we should make some play-dough because I have none here at the house for her to play with. The recipe I found on Pinterest ended up not working out so great and STUCK EVERYWHERE!!!!

So I decided to modify the recipe a little bit. I figured that when you are baking and things start to stick you use FLOUR….so that was my solution! And you know what….IT WORKED! Yay! 🙂

Play-dough Recipe

Seriously…this was the best! She loved it and it entertained her for almost 45 minutes!!! That is HUGE for my child who hates to sit still. (But let’s be honest…what 17 month old does like to sit still??) She loved getting to watch me mix the ingredients together and we talked about the different things that I was putting into the recipe. After it was made we created snakes and I spelled out her name and Mama. She just thought that was the best. Although, she wasn’t a fan of me playing with “her” play-dough at times. lol

Sadie also spent some time coloring. She just used my notebook and a plain black pen. I really need to find my crayons downstairs and some paper. She loves this and I know it’s so good for her. I’ve just been lazy and have slacked on searching for the right materials to make it even more fun for her.

This afternoon if it isn’t raining still and Brad isn’t exhausted from work, we may and try to hit up the pool. Now that is what I call a Fun Friday 🙂
