First is the Mason jar lid, made straw friendly! I’ve been looking all over for Mason jar mugs. I found small ones at the co-op & some online somewhere. Then I saw this! I thought “That’s a quick & easy project for Mr. Fix-It”. He made them so quickly that I didn’t even know he had gone off to make them. Mine isn’t spill-proof, I’m assuming because of the bendy straws I usually use but I haven’t thought that through yet, it may or may not make sense! But it is MORE spill-proof than the Tupperware ones I used to use. Those leaked quite a bit when tipped over. I had no part in the making of these, they really were quick & easy to make! Here’s mine with an acrylic straw:
Second up is “galaxy dough“, sparkly, homemade Play-doh type stuff. The Baker made it herself (another one I didn’t have any hand in making!). The texture is nice, it stays moist & stands up to cookie cutter usage! Four days later & it is still moist. We keep in a ZipLoc bag. For the first batch, we only had organic flour available. Since we like this dough so much, we went & bought cheap flour in bulk. It works just as nice as organic for this purpose. We love Galaxy Dough! The Baker put this Galaxy Dough to good use:
I want to use chunkier glitter in the next batch.
