February 2015 + our favorite play dough recipe

Pardon me while I play catchup here.  I know it's already mid March, but I wanted to share our February in review.
Basically, snow, snow and snow!  Also, our first visitors and a few fun crafts to celebrate Valentine's day.  We tried to get out and play, but many cold days had us seeking news ways to stay busy indoors.  We discovered a great play dough recipe that kept us occupied for hours.  Not to mention, it doubles as a treatment for parched winter hands and eczema.

Play dough Recipe:
Stir together 2/3 cups of quick oats, 3 Tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 Tablespoon of honey and 3/4 cups of hot water.  Once that's well stirred, add in 2 cups of cornstarch.  You can add more hot water as needed.  We also added a few drops of our favorite essential oil.

This makes your hands super soft.  Also, you can use this recipe (minus the cornstarch) for a pre-bath treatment.  James Robert is prone to eczema; it was a fun messy activity for him to rub the oat mixture on his legs and arms before bath time!
