In case you haven't noticed, we don't have a beach in our backyard
As I was thumbing through the Family Fun magazine on our way home from the beach I found the perfect craft project to have on hand for when Maddox asks to do another crap project. Because Maddox WILL be asking to do another crap project. I saw something similar on pinterest, but it called for baby oil and let's be honest, I haven't bought baby oil since 1996 when I spent the entire summer on the back deck working on my skin cancer with the Spin Doctors keeping me company on the boombox. This version called for vegetable oil, and I can do vegetable oil. Just mix 4 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of vegetable oil for the closest thing to building sandcastles in the desert. Two thumbs up, way up.
