Coconut Playdough- For this lesson we were supposed to make our own playdough and add coconut extract to the recipe. I did not have any and I also did not have some of the ingredients for making playdough. So we made do and just used our own.
The next directions were to make the playdough into long thin snakes and make alphabet letters.
Lacing Noodles the Letter "N"- For the letter "N" we dyed noodles with alcohol and food coloring. We let them sit and dry before lacing them on a piece of yarn. The alcohol was very strong so I would suggest using vinegar I heard you can use that too (that is what you use to dye easter eggs...right?)
Yesterday we made a new tunnel! Usually we connect the tunnel and the tent...well today Caden gave me a new idea to connect the square pads we use on the floor. So we connected that and made a longer tunnel and boy did he have a good time. Hannah went through it a couple of times but she was ready for dinner a little early so of course she bothered Mommy the entire time I was cooking...nothing entertained her at that point. Boy did she eat a good dinner though! :)
