I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

Edible Chocolate Play Dough Recipe
This is definitely a win-win recipe not only do you get hours of fun with play dough and you also get to eat it. I will be sharing with you two activities to have fun with this play dough at Inspired by Family our Play Dough in a Jar Cupcake Fun and at Spanglish Baby our Your Very Own Chocolate Factory craft.
Now you don't have to tell your kids not to stick that in their mouth or not to play with their food. They can actually eat this and play with it.
Edible Chocolate Play Dough
3-4 cps powdered sugar
3/4 cp cream cheese
3/4 cp powdered milk
1/2 cp Cocoa powder (baking kind)
Mix ingredient in a bowl. You don't want it to have a sticky consistency so start with 3 cups of sugar and if it's still sticky add a some sugar or milk powder.
My son is two and we made it together. He got to put the ingredients in and mix it and of course make a mess. Note he wass wearing an apron and the bowl we used was large.
