snow day fun
Once again I am not sure why my pictures show up in the opposite order (any ideas???)
We have had many snow days, teacher report writing days, and long weekends. Mixed with super freezing cold weather, we decided to come up with a fun indoor activity. The boys and I made pasta! We had such a great time! It took all morning too, which was great. ;)
First we mixed flour and eggs (and a teeny bit of water) to make the dough. Then we put it through the pasta machine about 6 times to get it nice and flat, and finally it was put through the cutting part of the machine to make our spaghetti, and set on a towel on the counter to dry. We had it for dinner the night we made it, and brought some to my parents to have with a family dinner. The boys loved it and thought it was so cool that they made it themselves.
I'm ready to be all done with snow days though, because I am running out of activities! Anyone have any good ideas for me to store away for our next snow day? I am pretty sure we will have more this winter!
