That is so not how crafty fun time goes at my house. I had been wanting to try this "magic snow" recipe and activity for ages (since before Christmas) but I always had a feeling it wasn't going to go as smoothly as it looked here, where I found it first (lovely photos of this activity happening indoors are about 1/3 of the way down the page).
I was so right. The kiddo had a great time, don't get me wrong. But neat and pretty this was not. My back porch is still recovering, and I'm pretty sure there's cornstarch in all the crevices of my phone.
We did two "scienspeewments:" magic snow and oobleck. Of course, I didn't take the proper ingredients picture until after the hurricane of kid fun had ended.
|Hopefully your kitchen ingredients don't look like this!|
|It looks like he's stoned and vomiting.|
|About 3 seconds after I got this picture, he dumped the bowl on my pants|
We had a good time with the Oobleck for a bit, but he kept finding the darn shaving cream and trying to add it to stuff.
|All proper back porches should have an unusable desk chair|
|Mixing, very messily|
|See, if I hadn't been trying to take pictures, I would've been able to get out of the way of this!|
|A seriously happy kid|
|How can you not smile at that happy mess of a child?|
Today, I'm thankful for Pinterest, cause I wouldn't have found this fun project without it. Also for gummy bears, Diana Krall albums, ginger ale, and most definitely our washer and dryer.
