Our Day

Today we did a little of this:

to make this:

No-Cook Playdough
2.5 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 packages koolaid powder
1 Tbsp. cream of tartar
2 cups boiling water
3 Tbsp. oil

Combine dry ingredients, add wet, and mix till a dough forms. Add more flour if it's sticky. I usually divide it into two bowls and make two colours but today we went wild and made FOUR colours!

We also did some of this:

Violet "replanted" tulips.

I worked for awhile, then was thinking about Twig and Toadstool's fairy kids aren't really into fairies but I started wondering what a garden would look like from a fairy's perspective, and then took these:

A walk to the mailbox revealed this:

Then we rounded the adventure off with some climbing,

and some lounging in the grass, getting some new freckles:

Now everyone is tired, a little scrappy and whiney, Daddy's going to be home soon, and dinner is ready. A good day, all told!


  1. love the pics---and the freckles are too cute!

  2. Love the replanting of tulips :-) My daughter used to do that when she was younger. Fairy lilac tree has become a "fairy tree house" and my little girl painted a gazebo for them. Acorn tops are regularly turned into fairy dishes, a fairy flower garden has been planted....such wonderful imagination. With all this I can't help thinking... "I do believe in Fairies, I do, I do" Happy Weekending :-)

  3. Looks to me like you are managing just beautifully with your "cheapy" camera. Gorgeous pics! Really love the one of V. replanting.

  4. I second Wabi Sabi...your cheapy camera takes lovely pictures!!
    loads of love

  5. You know the face I am making when I say "O.M.G. The. Freckle. Photo. Just. Did. Me. In."
