"Oh my gosh, your kids are home with you?!"

"What are you going to do with them?"

"What do you mean, you're not sending them to camp for both months??"

These comments were most often accompanied by looks of pity, horror, surprise, or a mix of all of the above.

"Yep." I answered, like a broken record.

And so far, it's been a blast. Take today, for example. We started out making 'play dough bread'.

Here's the list of ingredients we used:

4 cups whole wheat flour

1.5 cups hot water (I did this part)

1.5 cups of oil (whichever you have on hand-we used canola)

Scented extract (we used almond-but you could use any, and this is optional; it just really gave an authentic bread-like experience!)

Mix. That's it!

We started out 'cooking' and mixing all the ingredients in the kitchen.

Special Needs Kids

Once all the ingredients were mixed, I gave each kid a loaf pan to experiment and play with their own loaves. We then went to the backyard.

The treehouse of our swing set became their kitchen.

Check out all the great 'loaves of bread' they came up with!

When we were done for the day, we stored the play dough in their respective tins and ziplocs for another day (probably tomorrow!)
