Spray cooking sparay on your child's clean hands. Have them shape it into balls and set on wax paper to cool completely. Wrap the ball in colorful plastic wrap;then tie the ends with curling ribbon. Decorate with stickers.
We did sample ours along the way, LOL
Next I had gotten a few ears of feeder corn. We set some out for the squirrels but we also did a painting project and got really creative and messy! Second messy project in one day! What was I thinking? LOL
Well Blogger is freezing up while I'm typing so that's all for today!
