Homemade Paint

I wanted to get some finger paint for my daughter to play with. I finally found some but the price was way too expensive!

So, I was very happy to know that I can easily make them in my own kitchen! It's dirt cheap and almost effortless. My first attempt was a great success and I can't wait to do this again!

If you'd like to try making this, all you need is:
  A bit of sugar
  A bit of salt
  Food colouring (note: you may use turmeric for yellow but it stains) 

  1. Stir everything in a pot over slow fire until the mixture thickens. Add water if the mixture is too thick.
  2. Pour into separate containers.
  3. Add in food colouring
  4. Stir and play!

Banana Oats Muffins

I used to bake a lot. However, I haven't had much time for it since having a kid. I'm glad that lately I'm starting to bake more. How about having a curious toddler in the kitchen? I think it's great since I very much prefer it to sitting in front of the TV watching Barney or Mickey Mouse (no offense to both).

So it was a Thursday evening, after work that I made these very quick and easy muffins. The tot's chore was to sift the flour, some of which ended on the flour.

She tested some, and after that fed some to Smurf. I think the verdict is good, from both of them.
