How Cool is This Anyway?

I used to be a Girl Scout leader.I had a troop in California and then again in Nebraska.Because of all my work with kids, I have a stock pile of how to's and crafts some of them pretty cool and some of them big flops. And so it goes.

Today in reading through some blog emails I get I found this tip on home made Play Doh . It took me back to the days when my kids were little and I did things like this with them. How cool is this anyway?

2 Big Spoonfuls of White Frosting

1. Mix peanut butter and frosting together to form one big ball.
