With the Waldo Fire happening right now the kids haven't been able to play outside much. They are bouncing off the walls. The air quality isn't great. It is a lot better today then it was on Wednesday but you still smell the smoke. Our hearts go out to all those who have been evacuated and lost their homes. I will do another post on the Waldo Fire later.
Today we didn't have friends over. Instead we did a craft. We made puffy paint and made some pictures.
Check this craft out over at
This was so easy to make and cheap.
1/4 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup salt
4 TBSP water
Mix all ingredients until wet and no clumps.
Put in a bottle like the one by Tyler.
Use poster like paper to paint on. Cook in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and watch the paint rise.
We discovered the more paint (thickness) the more it will rise.
Tyler really loved this activity. He is still going. I will post his art work when he is finished.
