Hands on Color Wheel and Stuffed Zucchini
Inspired by this post to retry making playdough (we’ve done it before but with less than perfect consistency), I  had a revelation. When it came time to mix colors I thought it’d be a good opportunity to present Naomi with the Color Wheel.
So, I divided the dough into 6 pieces & made little divets in each. Using blue in 3, yellow in 3 and red in 3 overlapping between the colors (so, red & blue in one, yellow & blue in one & red & yellow in one). Then we kneaded them together. I asked Naomi ahead of time what she thought would happen, then as she mixed she realized what colors were being made–she loved it! Hands on learning…
Last night for dinner I made the Turkish Style Stuffed Zucchini for my Moosewood Challenge.
It was actually quite good. I substituted parmesean for the swiss it called for, but other than that–great. Paired with fresh tomato salad it was a great summer dinner. Naomi said she could eat it every day of the week & Leviah did this:

    That last shot is priceless! I'll have to try those. They look delicious! The color wheel looks quite fun too. 🙂

    Thanks for the play-dough idea! I was wanting to sign Kieran up for a play-dough of the month club, but I'm guessing making our own is probably a better idea. 🙂
