we are in the process of making a hot air balloon. yesterday we pasted paper strips to an actual balloon, using a homemade paste (1 part flour, 5 parts water and some salt cooked for about 7 minutes, medium heat, stirring continuously). the balloon is now drying then we will continue with the painting and attaching a "basket" (which will also be paper maché, i think). we will share the finished balloon here soon!
i love listening to the simple mom podcast when i get the chance, usually while the children are occupied, i use one earphone and listen to it while cooking or knitting.
while making stuff or when we're feeling like moving (dancing) a little, we just love to put on the holly throsby cd with children's music we got from danielle. "shadow and echo" is our most favourite song! we replay it again and again.
what are you making and listening to?
