Washi Tape Paper Clips

As much as I love my iPad and iPhone to keep track of things, I seem to always go back to paper and pens!  I like to clip important papers and things within my planners and notebooks so I know where they are.  I used some regular paper clips and some thin washi tape to make these little flag markers to use. You can write on the little flags if needed which is a great bonus over fabric markers.  These are so inexpensive to make and easy to replace if you need a new flag!

Homemade Play Dough

Today is the first day of Summer Break for the kids.  We decided to make play dough at home for the first time.  It was really easy and took less than 10 minutes.  Here is the recipe, you'll probably have the ingredients in your pantry already:

1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup water
Food coloring

Mix together the baking soda and cornstarch in a pot, breaking up any lumps.  Mix in water and food coloring.  Place the pot on the stove over medium heat stirring constantly.  As soon as the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the edge of the pot, turn the heat off.  If overcooked, the dough will be crumbly.  Transfer to a bowl and cover while waiting for it to cool.  Once cool, knead the dough and have fun!
