Little Artist

DSC_0047_043We usually do a lot of crafts around here. I love them and the girls are willing participants. Here are few things we have tried in January!


1. Play dough Snow Men- Lots of fun. I’m trying to think of different things to use for features.  I used little peppercorns( and they hurt when you would step on them), The google eyes and jingle bells were a hit though!

Snow playdough recipe

Here’s the no cook snow play dough recipe:

2 cups corn flour (cornstarch in the US)

1 cup salt

1 1/2 cups boiling water

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

silver glitter

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until your dough forms


2. We Dot paint alot. It’s fast- pretty clean and even Norah can do it! Here are the girls + Lizzy one day doing Alphabet letters. It has changed the way we paint! LOVE it!



3. The Easel! This Easel came to us from cousin Emma.THANKS to Emma and family for sharing it with us, it will be well loved!  It had been long loved and so when we got it Chris sanded it, stained, and put it back together! Lillian has really loved this special thing that just she gets to do. She is actually really focused and quite when she does it.  More pictures of her artwork to come. Auntie Heidi- the brushes and paint tubs are a hit, Thanks so much!  The backside has chalkboard that Norah enjoys using too!
