I’ve been all about engaging our daughter in activities that go along with books lately. Our favorite author of the moment is Monica Wellington. I mentioned her book Zinnia’s Flower Garden in Tick, Tock; here’s a picture of how our flowers turned out. Definitely going to be a yearly tradition with my girls! Then, based on our reading of Pizza at Sally’s, Liv and I decided to make pizza dough from scratch the other day, and we had so much fun! I don’t know why I’ve shied away from making it before…for some reason, the idea of using yeast seemed complicated and from a bygone era, but the whole process could NOT be simpler. Now, this is not to say I didn’t find a way to screw it up (more on that later), but nonetheless, it was a great activity for me and my beloved toddler, and it can totally be accomplished with a newborn, too.
