What with Pinterest telling me I’m no good unless I can spin gold from burlap and a mason jar and my mommy friends scaring me about how early I need to be signing Veronica up for preschool, I figured it was time to start doing some more active projects with the kids.
Yesterday we covered rainbows. Yeah, I dug deep for that one.
We started with a craft that involved cutting and gluing–two of my weaker points. The finished project:
Then we moved on to the cooking part of our challenge. We took vanilla pudding and (look away if you don’t like poisoning your children with food coloring) turned it into a rainbow dessert:
Our beautiful creation:
During the taste test, Veronica was not impressed.
William, on the other hand, thought it was the best thing he’d ever eaten.
We took the leftover stuff and used it for edible fingerpaints for the Bubs.
Then there was also this failed craft, which was actually pretty cool and I’d like to try again sometime:
All in all I’d say it was a successful day. Veronica now knows that indigo is a color of the rainbow, even if she has no clue what that means. Eh, I’ll take it.
