I haven't been brave enough before to attempt a true project like this with Aidric, but with the weather so cold, we need some diversions inside. (Yes, 30 degrees is COLD!)
So, I found a recipe for play-doh that would harden in the oven and we made the play-doh first (using flour, salt, vegetable oil and water) and then formed balls to make a snowman. Well, I formed the balls- Aidric smashed the balls until I finally had to move over to the counter to finish them. What a mess we made! Good thing daddy was working away from home that day!!
We waited until the following day to paint the masterpiece. And I guess all of the times that I've said, "We only paint on paper" actually sunk in, b/c he didn't love painting on the snowman and kept asking for "pay-puh".
As for Miss Jules- you can see she was VERY excited to witness this project.
A few more of her to show you the cute outfit she was wearing that day. (Thanks Aunt Sarah!)
