My mom is the crafting queen. My childhood was filled with tons of creativity. My mom has more imagination in her little finger then most people have in their whole body. Growing up we never threw away a cereal box, paper towel or toilet paper roll, anything with creative potential was saved. I am so happy to see my mom has not missed a beat when it comes to her grand kids. She has ideas saved up form newspaper articles, children's books, web sites, and from her memory. I have enjoyed seeing all the neat things my kids make after spending the afternoon with "Mimie".
I had to share this one with you.
As I will all the others in another post...
All you need is:
2 Envelopes unflavored Gelatin
1tsp or more of some perfume or other fragrance
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup ice cold water
A small jar like a jelly or baby food jar
Mix the gelatin and hot water in a bowl until the gelatin in dissolved. Stir in Fragrance and food coloring, then the ice water. let set in a cool place. ( do not put it in the frige)
This smelled so good. You could cover it with some pretty fabric and tie it with a ribbon and it would be a nice gift your kids could make for family at Christmas.
