There is a lovely little girl at playgroup that Lachie totally adores. Today, we went to her house for a very impromptu play date.
They made and played with play dough. He wanted blue. She wanted green. They look so cute in matching Tupperware aprons and hats.
Recipe for play dough
1 cup of salt
2 cups of plain flour
4 tablespoons of cream of tartar
2 cups of water
few drops of food colouring
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan (or two). Now for BIG hands only: Heat and stir until it becomes thick. Remove from pot and while it is warm and gooey, rest play dough on your palm, squeeze play dough between fingers and knead until soft. Repeat. Now hand play dough over to little hands.
It will be interesting to see how this friendship will blossom in years to come. I just think it is wonderful for Lachie to develop a special friendship, regardless of gender.
