So it has rained here in good old NC for 11 day's straight! I am OVER it & so are my boy's! They love to be outside so with all this rain & storming it is making it impossible. So as promised I have 2 DIY fun projects for kids!
I talk with one of my best friends back home in good old Western NY often! We were chatting via text this am & she was like maybe you should go out & make mud pies! (cute idea except our house is for sale so if we start digging in the yard my husband would have a FIT!)
So we started brainstorming & what did we think of... Pinterest of course. DIY inside mud pies!!
Almost Unschoolers is where I got the idea :)
*A roll of toilet paper
*Bar of soap
Unroll the TP & shred it, grate the soap, put the soap on top of TP & add food color, next add hot water a little at a time *you don't want it soupy*
We tried to get a brown & it just wasn't working for us lol but my boy's didn't care!
Let The kids have fun :)
Sometimes one of my boy's will get bored with one thing so it's always good if I can have 2 projects so they can bounce back & forth!
The second project we did was DIY Kool Aid Play dough! I have posted other diy Dough's you can find them here:
I liked those dough's which were made with corn starch but they were still a little messy! This dough is not messy at all I even let the baby play with it. (he tried to eat it but it's safe)
I found this dough thanks to:
For this dough you need:
1cup of flour
1/4 cup salt
1 packet Kool aid
1 Tbsp oil
2/3 cup water *you may only need 1/2 cup* I used almost the whole 2/3
Mix flour, salt & Kool aid
Boil oil & water then mix slowly into dry ingredients until you have play dough consistency!
It smells amazing & the boy's played with it for quite awhile!! I plan to make more in different colors!
So there you have it 2 easy rainy day projects to entertain kids :)
