Feel Like a Creative Mama for Try Something New Thursday

This last weekend there was a mom-to-mom sale I really wanted to go to.  It was raining.  I was home with all three kids.  But I still wanted to go.  So we braved the nasty weather and the insanity of taking them to a busy, busy place.  They did great.  They listened so well!!!!! 

We found some clothes for Patrice and Caitlyn at the sale; Sue really doesn’t need anything.  But she did score a cute construction hat a lady gave her (she does look darn cute in it!) and some fun dress up costumes.  And I found some things that make me feel like a fun, creative mama.  I brought home 4 cute kid craft and cooking books.

Once we got home, and the kitchen cleaned and lunch eaten, we set out to do our first craft from one of the books, The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions by John E. Thomas and Danita Pagel  There are tons of great things in there.  I am going to be unstoppable once we get some glue and tempera paints!

Our first project from the book was Wacky Watercolors.

3 Tablespoons baking soda
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
3 Tablespoons white vinegar
1 1/2 Teaspoons light corn syrup
Food Coloring

See instructions in with pictures.

Check out our results:

Survive til you Thrive!
