Making Snowflakes Indoors This January

Still no snow outside, which I am very grateful for! It’s actually been a beautiful week, with many afternoons spent outside. I’ll take 54 degrees in January over snow any day! Having one of those weeks that whispers "you are not enough, you are not meeting anyone's needs" and then today school magically finishes by noon, children play happily together, Legos are built, and crafts are made. Thankful for mothering through the rough emotional days and the fact that they think I am more than enough even when I worry I am failing.

Since it’s not snowing outside, we made some snowflakes for inside the house. I shared the tutorial for Glitter Salt Dough Snowflakes over at Musings From a Stay at Home Mom. Pop on over to check them out and get the recipe. glitter salt dough snowflakes

I generally don’t do glitter and I pretty much never have play dough for my kids, so they thought this craft was a huge treat. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! It was nothing like play dough. First, there was no awful play dough smell. Second, the texture of the dough was so much better than play dough, it neither crumbled everywhere, nor stuck to everything. Clean up wasn’t bad at all. Since the glitter was trapped nicely into the dough, I also didn’t have to deal with glitter falling off the craft all over the house.

Seriously, this was a wonderful craft! Make it today!glitter salt dough snowflakes
