I have no idea where I saw this idea. If I remember, I will give proper credit to the idea maker. The idea is simple: Dip scraps of yarn in school glue and paste on a bowl sort of like making a pinata. After the bowl is covered well, set out to dry. You can put them in a low oven to dry the glue faster, but I wasn’t sure if our bowl was oven safe. After the glue is all dry, peel the yarn bowl away from the cereal bowl. It hold its shape pretty good. Promise has hers setting on her dresser holding some knickknacks.
Promise has been very interested in completing everything from our Fall Bucket List, so she decided she needed to make “leaf art.” I didn’t give her any instruction on how to do leaf art. She decided on gluing pretty leaves to paper. Leaf art completed!
We also made applesauce in the crock pot. Super duper easy. This is my “recipe”:
- Peel, core and slice some apples, put them into crock pot
- add some water and cinnamon
- cook on high for a bit. stirring occasionally. I think it took about 1 – 2 hours for the apples to get soft. I really wasn’t paying much attention.
- use immersion blender until consistency of your choice
- add a splash of vanilla and serve hot or cold.
You can add a bit of lemon juice at the beginning to help it from browning too much. I prefer my applesauce hot right out of the crock pot, but it’s just as good cold. It makes the house smell like autumn while it is cooking.
