Snow Day Stuff

We were snowed-in today and judging by the way the fluffy white stuff is still falling, it may be awhile before we thaw out. Here are a few things we did to make our day a little less like a scene out of THE SHINING. First, we made the world's best and easiest play dough. It is super soft and smells so yummy that I just had to join Atley in taking an occasional taste.

1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 pkg. Kool Aid
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 TBL Oil
Mix dry ingredients, mix wet ingredients, combine, knead, let cool and play.

Then we collected the falling snow in a bowl to make ICE CREAM. Obviously, you don't need to collect it in a bowl. Just don't eat any yellow snow, if you know what I mean.

1 large bowl of fresh snow
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk-or more depending upon desired consistency
Combine snow, sugar, and vanilla, add 1 cup milk. QUICKLY, put ice cream in bowls add sprinkles and enjoy.
