On Tuesday's and Thursday's when the girls get home from school at one, I immediately go lay Ava down for a nap. Once Ava is snoozing, Carli and I usually try to do something fun for a four year old. Sometimes we just color and read books. We have played outside a lot, we cook and clean (seriously, she thinks this is fun). But this last week we decided to make something fun in the kitchen. Carli immediately named it "Ooey-Gooey Stuff." It was just Corn Starch and water with some food coloring. It was very entertaining. Carli played with it for a good hour and I made a pumpkin cake. :)
Yes, it pretty much got everywhere but it was super easy to clean up. When Ava got up from her nap, she played with it a bit too. She was intrigued but thought playing outside was much more fun!
