So I was up until 1:30 this morning with poor Sneaky B. She had major gas and finally after a five-minute bout of farting, she passed out. Poor thing, she is so gassy, maybe because she snorts like a pig when she is hungry (I will find a way to share her piggy self with you, I know she will “appreciate” that when she’s older) and swallows air, who knows I’m just guessing at the parenting thing. Any-who-
When I’m tired I feel like hanging out at home and since it’s October and we wandered around the dollar store yesterday for Halloween decorations, we might as well get into the spirit and decorate at bit.
“Mommy we haven’t done art together in ages”- guilt ridden mama had to make time today to do some art with Kiddo. Oye I feel horrible. So with decorating on hold, it’s time to be creative with Kiddo. Remembering a project from decades ago, we gathered our supplies and got messy.
Pasta, Glitter Spider Webs
What you will need, very simply, pasta, glitter & glue.
Supplies: plastic plates or cardboard & plastic wrap, a large bowl and a bit of patience
First, Mama cooks some pasta, al-dente please. Added bonus- if your kid likes spaghetti cook extra from lunch, my kiddo always chokes on spaghetti so no added bonus for us today.
While the spaghetti is cooking, I drew a picture of a spider web on paper, to help kiddo out a bit, and covered it with plastic and Kiddo got “Fashy” to be creative.
Added the cooked spaghetti to the bowl, cover it with glue and glitter and mix it up with your hands. Then create spider webs on the plastic cardboard or plate. Add some extra glue and glitter why not, and then let them dry (this takes FOREVER! like 24 hours FOREVER). Once they are dry carefully pull them off the plastic and hang them up.
