On the 20th Day of Christmas

Carson and I made homemade candy cane play-dough for the 20th day of Christmas. Having seen Carson have so much fun with his play-dough earlier in the moth my wheels started turning when figured out what to give a few of his small friends for Christmas. I then decided that it would be fun for Carson to help participate in making his friends gifts, it turned out to be easy and fun to make, inexpensive, and once given, gives the child lots of fun creative play.  
He did surprising well with sturing and not making a mess, loved seeing his eyes sparkle with delight that he was doing something new on his own. 
 He loves kneading and playing with the play-dough
 I guess he had to figure out for himself that the red play-dough was still cooling. 
I have recently figured out that he has a funny way of sticking out his lips, LOVE IT!
Getting better skills and rolling balls.
 Kneading in the peppermint oil and the glitter to make it sparkle.
 Making the Christmas tree cards for his friends, he just loves stickers. 
 Our final present all ready to be delivered
5 cups water, 5 cups flour, 2 and 1/2 cups of salt, 3 T of cream of tarter, 10 T of vegetable oil
Optional to make your play-dough sparkle and smell- food coloring, peppermint oil(or any oil), and some glitter. There you have candy cane play-dough.
While Sydni was sleeping we quickly headed out to deliver the gifts, at every house without fail he would say, "Merry Tripas!"
This little boy is a handful, but he sure cracks me up sometimes with his mannerisms.
We will have to something homemade again for our friends, it was a lot of fun. 

To finish off the day I have to mention what happened when Carson discovered Toby was gone for the day because he had been touched by Carson the day before. Well in the morning at breakfast, Carson says, "Where did Toby go?" Followed by answering his own question, " Santa, Doctor, better." Well if you think it couldn't get any cuter just wait. A while later Robert told Carson that he should say sorry to Toby for touching him and making him have to go to the doctor, this was his response. " Sorry Toby bye. Sorry Toby sorry, I miss you."  Awe just melted out hearts how sweet he was and how he missed his new friend Toby.
