The weather in Boston today is alternating between hot, rainy and hot, so we're crafting it up inside our apartment.
Step one was a quick (ahem, 90-minute) trip to Michael's craft store, though. That's one thing the girls are getting used to. Since we don't have a car, we either walk or ride the T (subway) wherever we need to go. The girls end up walking about 10 miles a day and rarely complain--they're troopers. Ask me again in January.
They've been wanting to make miniature food and other objects out of Fimo dough for their dolls. By wanting, I mean obsessing. Check out their idea lists:
Yes, #44 says "vegan stuff."
(Oh my! Add thunder to today's list of weather events.)
So they bought some clay and immediately began creating once we got back home. FYI: they actually purchased the Premo! brand of clay, not Fimo. It's working great.
Longtime Penny Carnival readers might remember the edible version of that rainbow cake.
They're not following any instructions, just experimenting as they go. Most importantly, it's been three hours and they're still diggin' it. Score!
Easy. Fun. Minimal mess. Functional results (for the dolls, anyway).
