A thoughtful gift for my birthday. Unfortunately, due to ridiculously sensitive skin, they make me itch. The big Bowerbird is very glad that I have this problem as she is rather partial to a bath bomb.
The box was filled with biodegradable packing peanuts which make excellent craft products.
If you wet the end they become sticky and you can sculpt with them. Apparently you can even use them as a food source, if desperate, but we didn't try that out.
Whilst the children played there was some seed sorting. I finally cracked open my spaghetti squash, alas no spaghetti, but perfectly formed seeds (anyone know if that is normal with spaghetti squash?). I didn't want to waste the flesh so I grated it and put it into apple and spaghetti squash muffins - quite delicious.
Everything is more fun with food dye.
The food dye also came out to add to a batch of these macaroons that the big Bowerbird made.
Then with the packaging goo we made paint.
And just in case there wasn't enough food dye action - green was added to pancakes - food dye and pancakes are a Sunday tradition. We had pancake letters made for each child this weekend and Mr Bowerbird made me a beautiful sun.
The cold weather led to a day long craftathon. Out came the plasticine.
Finally the chalk had a workout
love a slow weekend
