Once again, Pinterest for the win

June 17, 2012

Often, I pin things on Pinterest that I have very real intentions of trying, but then I forget about them and they get buried under all my other pins of recipes I’m not baking and places I have yet to visit. But this weekend I followed through with Tea’s help – we mixed up a simple batch of sidewalk paint (corn starch plus water plus food coloring).  It was the easiest “special messy treat” I can imagine (although perhaps that’s because I made Kyle handle bath time afterwards).

I enjoyed this almost as much as the boys did – I hate the feeling of chalk on my fingers so it was nice to hold a paintbrush instead.

Of course, it rained a few hours later, but that means we have an excuse to mix up another batch soon.

    OMG what is this pinterest? Wait, don’t tell me. I bet it’s going to suck up time I don’t have for projects I never get to, right? How about you just tell me what I should do? I like this plan much better…

      Yes, that is *exactly* what Pinterest is, but if you’re going to waste time online, it’s a fun way to do it.
