(Mar. 7, 2014) This month’s sensory from the series of Lemon Lime Adventures is edible dough! I searched high and low trying to figure out a dough that our I Spy twist would work with, in the end I had to resign myself to the fact that it wasn’t possible or simply just too disgusting, lol. So once I understood that I looked around for doughs and found this page, read through it all, all are safe to put in your mouth but clearly not all taste good enough to fully eat. I figured as long as it’s supposed to be edible might as well make it fully edible with things I know Nico will eat and we mostly have on hand (we were only missing the fluff). So I opted for the peanut butter/graham crackers play dough as Nico likes all the components.
One of the “holidays” Nico loves is Pancake Day! Nico asked when pancake day was early in February, he was pretty disappointed when I told him this year it was March 4th only, it was way too many days away! So I knew that after doing this the 2 previous with simple pancakes we had to find something different for this year. In my inbox, last week I got a recipe for cinnamon rolls pancakes which looked SO yummy! But Nico didn’t go for it so we kept searching and Alex found the Nutella donut pancakes which lead him to the doughnut pancakes! When Nico heard of the last one he flipped out, we had to make those!
Don’t panic – we got bannock!
Wishing you all a Happy Valentine’s Day! You can find out more about those yummy cookies here
(February 13, 2014) Yesterday I got those Peanut-Butter and Chocolate Heart Cookies from Mama Miss in my inbox and right away I knew I had to make them. For every holiday we give something homemade to our chiro that saved my life (she really did) and I knew those were “it”. Now we hunted high and low (ok, it was one store) for heart-shaped chocolates, but could not find any, so we settled for some Cadbury Buttons and used little heart sprinkles to make them more “Valentine-y”.
After Christmas was done we decided to keep one of the small trees out and decorate it according to the different holidays or seasons going on. Our first holiday after Christmas is Valentine’s Day!
(Feb. 12, 2014) We’ve played in cloud dough several times before but not since we’ve moved back to Calgary. This time we made it to go with the 12 month challenge/series we are part of, which is a new sensory dough a month for a year! So we added a few elements this time
(Jan. 21, 2014) After Christmas was done we decided to keep one of the small trees out and decorate it according to the different holidays or seasons going on. Our first holiday after Christmas is Valentine’s Day! Our fourth and last craft for our tree was little heart clothespins clips, I wanted something simple Nico could pretty much do on his own if set up.
(February 3, 2014) Yah-man – we are traveling to Jam-eh-ca (must be Canadian, no?) and having ourselves some festivals! No, we are not celebrating or partying, but one of the Caribbean island’s favourite snacks, which often are served either as a dessert or as a side with some ackee and saltfish or many other uses. We had seen these on an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, so we went out to search for an actual recipe and you have no idea how hard it is when all you get is information about festivals of different kinds that happen to take place in Jamaica… If you, though, want to make it a Jamaican party at your house, here are our colouring placemat and passport for the island!
