What an awesome day! What better way to start the day than to go out to your own back yard to pick blueberries. Yesterday there was a mother black bear on our road so today we brought our dog Bruno with us on our journey. Whenever we pick blueberries from our trees I think of Ians Nanny. Nanny owned our house and lived here until she passed. I always feel like she's watching over the girls, picking blueberries with them is something I know she would have loved to do. We're saving our blueberries for tomorrow so we can bake blueberry muffins.
We went for a long hike on our property and explored streams, rocks, and bugs! It was so beautiful out that we decided to stay out all morning.
I the afternoon we made play dough. The girls had been waiting all day to get their hands sticky and gross.
We use a very basic play dough recipe.
2 cups Flour
1 cup Salt
1 cup Water
Food coloring optional!
First mix your flour and salt, then add water
We added red and blue food coloring to make purple but we ended up with a deep greyish blue.
