Making play dough

We spent an hour making homemade playdough. The girls measured out the ingredients and stirred until thick, but the best part- mixing the colors! It was like chemistry class wondering what a drop of blue would turn it to. What fun!

Planting Spring Wheat grass

Each year at the Spring Equinox, we plant wheat grass in baskets, shallow dishes or plates. It always looks so festive and lasts through the spring.

Wind Chimes

We learned about the March winds this week. Our craft was to make a nature wind chime. These came out so great! Here are some pictures with Lily & Brooke holding theirs. They are so proud, they hung them in the outside nature "house" (3 hugh privet bushes they play in)

I was outside in the yard and they actually do clank around so nicely!
