Snow Wonderful...

My Grandpa is still in the hospital, but he is doing well and doesn't want to give anyone else his illness so I guess I won't be visiting him. Thanks for the good ideas though!

This is what the world around me looks like today! Snowy and windy and very beautiful. These are the sage brush that blew into our front yard and are now collecting lots of snow.
We are staying inside today. What do we do ?..?? Trapped inside is a perfect day for GF playdough!!

Don't they look happy? Here is the easy recipe.

Play dough
1 Cup Salt
1/3 Cup water
Heat over med-high heat until hot and bubbly-or until the water starts to evaporate.
Remove from heat and add:
1/2 Cup Cornstarch
1/4 Cup cold water
a few drops of food coloring
mix this until it all clumps together. You may want to set it back on the burner if there is too much water in the mix. Let it cool and play!!!!

They will eat it, mine did...Yuck!
