25 Days of Christmas - Day 3

>> Friday, December 3, 2010

Initally for tonight's 25 Days of Christmas activity we were going to go to Bean's school for the Christmas Family Dance.  When I put that on the calendar I wasn't anticipating that Little E would still be battling this cough. It dawned on me last night that the last place I should take him is a crowded gym that's overheated & where he will want to run. That will only lead to one thing - major coughing fit.  So this morning I set out to figure out a replacement activity. I wanted something easy because both of the big kids have plans for tonight as well. We ended up making red and green Kool-Aid Playdough.

Little E stirring it up good.
(I wanted to get more pictures of the kids helping make it, but it was difficult without another adult around)
I was happy Bub was still excited about making playdough :)
Little E really, really enjoyed the playdough. He was very excited.
Bean figuring out which cutter to try next
 If you would like to try making your own Kool-Aid Playdough here is the recipe for you.

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 package of unsweetened Kool-Aid
  • 3 TBS oil
  • 1 cup of boiling water

  1. Mix the dry ingredients
  2. Add boiling water & oil
  3. Mix throughly
  4. Knead the flour and other ingredients until very well mixed
  5. Add more flour if necessary for texture to create a soft dough
  6. Start playing!
We also added some glitter to our playdough for a little extra holiday sparkle. :)
