Elsa dancing in snow, and a fun way to entertain a 5 year old for
Emily got a dress at Walmart to dress up as Elsa from Frozen! She's in heaven! We cut paper snowflakes and she made snow from toilet paper.....while grandma Julie wasn't looking, mind you! Oh well. She has danced in this mess all day! And to think she stayed home sick today! Hmmmmm.......
One of her new found loves is cracking open and eating pistachios. We decided to color the shells with markers to use in an art craft.
Soon, we decided to try dying bigger batches. Used food coloring in water with a splash of vinegar. The neon blue came out the prettiest (a nice sort of teal).
The whole time we worked on it, the 5 year old sugar girl kept on saying, "this is the most awesome art craft, isn't it Grandma"?????? Lol. So cute. This activity kept her entertained a couple of hours! WOWZERS!
Any good ideas on what we could do with these babies? We left some natural color too! I was thinking of hot gluing a wreath or a sign saying "Happy Birthday", maybe?????
