Rainy Days and Homemade Fun!!!

Have you ever made homemade play-doh?

I found this homemade recipe online and since we have been dealing with lots of rainy days we decided to try it out!!

We decided to make neapolitan colors using cocoa powder, cherry juice, and vanilla extract.

It was so easy to make and my kids had a blast!

I loved how my kids spent the day playing with this great smelling playdoh and coming up with such creative play!

They made a menu….

They made play- doh treats!!


and chocolate chunk truffles….

-so creative!!

They mixed the colors…which I normally hate but this day I let them just be as creative as they wanted to be!!!

Also, this week we had homemade coconut yogurt with fun toppings!!

I still haven’t mastered my yogurt making techniques-it still comes out more like a thick cream rather than normal yogurt consistency.

But I will keep trying until I get it right!!

So, to make eating the yogurt fun I got some healthy toppings ready in some cute little bowls.

We had ground flax, dairy free chocolate chips, goji berries, chia seeds, buckwheat groats, and dried coconut flakes.

I gave each of my kids a bowl of yogurt and set the toppings on the table for them to create a healthy yogurt sundae.

They had fun with this!

Their creations:

My son opted for ground flax, chia seeds, and chocolate chips!

My daughter was more adventurous and went with a little of everything!

My bowl had some cacao nibs, goji berries, chocolate chips and Β a drizzle of coconut nectar.

The next day I had another bowl with cocoa powder, cacao nibs, and goji berries.

Β So good!!

  1. I would love to know how to make homemade yogurt! My son is allergic to dairy and I have been paying $2 for one coconut yogurt for him. Recipes please!

  2. I love how amazing and healthy your kids are seriously the ice cream sundae idea is the cutest thing ever and I love that your sun picked flax seeds πŸ™‚ I have been thinking about getting a yogurt maker forever what brand do you have, do you recommend it?

    • Thanks! πŸ™‚ I have Tribest Yolife yogurt maker and I like it…I have heard that you can use your dehydrator though so maybe try that before spending more money!!! πŸ™‚

  3. Ahhhhh you’re such an inspiration!! Love reading your blog!! Am THIS CLOSE to signing up for your Unprocess Me…..is JUST what I need πŸ˜€

  4. My mom used to make me homemade playdoh all the time as a child…I have such great memories of that and once again you’ve reminded me of something I must do when I have kids…

    You’re absolutely inspiring!

    PS I love the toppings your kids chose. As a future mom, I truly wish my kids are that open minded! Great work!

  5. This brings back memories of making homemade playdough with my mom. My sisters and I also used to create menus like that, too. My one sister called everything she made her “famous dill-asta” … whatever that means. She doesn’t know what she meant either. Ha ha.

  6. This looks like a lot of fun. I have made play dough a long time ago. ( I used to work in a child care center). However I haven’t made it in years.

    Yogurt sounds great. I have not made coconut yogurt yet. I plan to soon. I did take a course on fermenting foods, but have not tried all of the recipes that they provided yet. I will try to look it up this week.

    Your ideas are great!!

  7. I have made homemade playdough – it’s been quite a while but it’s fun! I’m going to have to make some now and color it naturally. Great post – thanks for sharing!

  8. Just stumbled on your blog today. Funny because I’ve been stalking yogurt makers online this week, debating if I should buy one. I might wait a little longer and see how your future recipes turn out.

  9. Can’t wait until you share your yogurt recipe! I’ve tried a couple of times (with the same tribest πŸ˜‰ and the sunflower seed yogurt was borderline gross…the coconut milk one was delish but very runny. I need more practice =)
