Mommy Tip Monday and a survey

Here we get a whole variety of weather.....most of which requires we stay indoors. That, combined with a recommendation from my daughters occupational therapist that she do hand strengthening crafts makes this activity perfect for our family.

I almost always have all the ingredients on hand for this recipe for homemade playdough. And although we usually leave ours white, after finding this recipe for natural dye I may have to change that.

What to do once you have made the playdough??? Well of course if your children are old enough they can make sculptures that resemble things. However littler hands might have fun just mashing, poking, stamping, or rolling. We make balls, and snakes, and I break out all of the cookie cutters to make shapes. This will seriously keep the kids busy for hours.

Now for the part of the show where I come out and ask a question...

What would you like to see in my Monday posts? I've listed several options, feel free to comment here, on my facebook fan page, or by email. I read, and respond to all three.

a. crafts
b. sensory processing disorder
c. picky eaters
d. product reviews
e. family planning (infertility, natural birth control, etc)
f. shut up and get back to posting recipes
g. other (specify)

I welcome your suggestions and ideas. I have a few up my sleeve, but I would really like to hit topics that you all find interesting and informative. A big thank you to all who take the time to read and or comment on this.


  1. I'm pretty much all about recipes at this point. I love drooling over food!! Product reviews are OKAY but they often don't pertain to me and I don't have any money to buy anything anyways! :-)

  2. I vote for sensory processing disorder as that would make you an unique blogger and I want to read about that (I'm selfish, I admit it)
    You can do recipes another day...Bahawwwa

  3. Debbi,
    I love drooling over food too (duh). And ditto the money thing.

    Selfish is the last word I would use to describe you. :)

  4. My vote is "Miscellaneous Mondays" where you can step away from recipe writing once a week to discuss any and all the above and more. The Miscellaneous things in life you wish to share with all of us curious fan/friends. Just a thought, oh and I think I figured out what was to figure out how to fix it on the other computer.
