It was a family activity night tonight. After we enjoyed our second batch (new and improved) of trilobite cookies, we made our clay salamanders. Well, David actually made a Permian reptile, the Dimetrodon, which he found sitting on the kitchen counter, oddly enough.

Here our cold-blooded creatures are getting ready to bask in the sun oven.

Ready for the oven

After an hour, they were ready to come alive with colors!

We used colorful metallic paints, which at first I wasn’t so sure about, but they totally rocked! Satori is painting her salamander in all kinds of colors. You can also see her baby sea turtle in this shot, equally vibrant.

David made this shimmering green/yellow Dimetrodon and baby. Angela made the trilobite top left.

Making Clay Creatures

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1 T vegetable oil

Mix and then knead until nice and smooth. Form your salamander or creature, don’t forget legs and beady eyes! We made indentations on our creatures for toes, wrinkles and mouth. Bake in oven at 300 degrees for an hour. Wait until cool, then paint away! Then set your clay creatures and salamanders somewhere where you can enjoy your craft all year long.

Thank you Nature's Own

Satori gave Mike and Levi at Nature’s Own in Nederland, CO this thank you note today. 🙂 Levi was kind enough to spend some time a few weeks ago to show us the fossils they had in the store and helped pick out her first trilobite fossil. (Can you tell Satori likes trilobites yet?)

We have a few pen-pals now, and have gotten some nice letters, so we’ll be spending tomorrow writing some of her new friends. Great way to practice handwriting, we haven’t done this for awhile!

David promised to get Satori her very own computer in June. Since June 1st is tomorrow, he couldn’t wait to get it for her today!

So we headed down to Boulder and got her a super cool computer. I gave her one of my 24″ LCD panels, and we had set up her desk a few weeks ago. So all we needed was a small, girly pink mouse and we’re set!

We’ll be using this computer for homeschooling/learning how to read and stuff. I gave her one of my old cameras, so I will show  her how to frame her photos in the camera, take decent shots, and how to edit them on her computer. 🙂
