I finally had success with shaving cream/glue puffy paints! Last year we had a pitiful mess of flaking, smooshable, FLAT goo but this year….SUCCESS!
Look at that lovely, puffy snowflake.
I guess I wouldn’t say this was any less messy than last year but Vicki had a great time. Evidently the secret is to make sure you use enough glue. The “recipe” calls for 1/2 glue, 1/2 shaving cream but it’s really hard to measure when the cream foams up and the glue doesn’t. Vicki chose a lovey brass-colored glitter to add.
Meanwhile, Georgie had no interest in playing with sticky white muck so I introduced him to fuse beads. I had a bucket full from when Steph was younger.
Georgie made a star that he decided to hang on the wall of his room instead of the tree. I made a heart and then made him a Pikachu. Our bucket of fuse beads is mostly pastels and neons, so I’m going to have to gets some more blacks and primary colors before I can make any other Pokemon.
Vicki and I also made some Christmas sugar cookies this week. Georgie wasn’t interested in helping – since he doesn’t eat sugar cookies, he didn’t want to make sugar cookies. I may try and talk him into making some cookies with his two favorite things - Hershey Kisses and peanut butter.
