Frozen

 Frozen....
no not the Disney movie...
Frozen sidewalk chalk...
Hotrod requested to make it...
he remembers it from last summer...
 
 really simple...
equal parts corn starch and water...
add food color...or washable paint...
mix well...
put in freezer...
for these we used star ice trays...
we also made some in the plastic popsicle containers..
you see them everywhere...
 it is a very messy...fun...way to enjoy a warm day...
Hotrod doesn't really care about drawing with them...
he just likes to smash them...
rub them...
and get it all over himself...
 
 they are super simple to make...
easy to keep on hand...
 
 I love how the simplest of things...
bring so much joy and laughter to Hotrod...
he really has a wonderful imagination...
 
 clean up is easy...
just run a hose across it...
or let it rain...
which we are hoping to get some today...
 
 I am sitting in the dental office this morning...
my sweet daughter is having 2 wisdom teeth removed...
you know no matter how old they are...
they are still your babies...
I hate to see them go through discomfort...
 
 I will take her to her house and stay with her...
then her boyfriend will come home at lunch time...
to take over...he is such a sweetie pie...
I'm so happy she has him in her life...
 
 Hotrod is just taking a closer look...
up close and personal...
Happy Thursday....
