    What a great selection of activities – today we’re making Stained glass cookies I found them in my cookie book and thought they would be great I hadn’t realised that Outlaw Mom had done them before will be able to link through to her as the recipe looks slightly different.

    Thank you for including ours as well

      We are in the same exact boat. Our playdough smells like pumpkin pie, so ours might predate your batch :)

    Thank you! I scroll right down to treats first then slowly up with all the fun ideas. Going to try the stained glass cookies tomorrow. Much thanks!

      Kelly — they’re way too cute. I’m a huge fan of working with natural materials and doing good for the environment, and I just love these.

      Hi Jennifer! Thanks for sharing your Valentine card post — how inspiring. I love how you made it so easy for your daughter to make so many all at once…without losing steam. Brilliant. And the washing station is a lovely, and smart, touch. Happy Valentine’s Day!
