Angel Dough

We had  a morning of unexpected enlightenment. The kids were up early as usual.  By 8 am they had watched tv, eaten breakfast, gotten dressed and were asking to do arts & crafts. So I poured a cup of coffee and tried to come up with an easy activity that would entertain the troops.  I decided to make Cloud Dough.  You mix flour and oil together and poof- instant entertainment.  It is another recipe I got from the amazing Tinkerlab blog.  It is very light and fluffy. I put it into aluminum tins and gave everyone cookie cutters and spoons to scoop with.  And they loved it!

Vincenzo said he liked how fluffy it felt and that he thought we should call it Angel Dough because it reminded him of the Angels that took our cat Spooky to Heaven. I have to admit it was a bit early for such  a revelation.  But, after my cup of coffee, I was able to process that thought and it is pretty profound.  I guess you never know what arts & crafts will lead too.
