Jordan mostly stayed comfortable inside the tent with some snacks. 😀  But we still had fun.

Camp Dolliwatha: Make Marshmallows and Granola

Hi! Today I’m going to show you how to make granola and marshmallows out of clay for your dolls. Copy of Copy of Make a Cut Tied Back Summer Tank Top. Perfect for Camping

So first I used some golden brown clay and formed it into a cashew shape using a toothpick.

Then I pretty much randomly used nut like colors and made a tear drop shape XD I guess the green ones can pass as pumpkin seeds? I don’t know.

Next to make the marshmallows you can roll out some white clay and then put the base on the ground and press it down with your finger.

It gives it kind of a more natural shape.

Finally after you have made as many as you want you can grab a skewer and make a little hole at the bottom of your marshmallow.

Make sure your whole is a tiny bit bigger than the skewer because it gets a little smaller when you bake it.

I tried to make one where it looked a little toasted, but it didn’t really look natural, but you could try!

Then put your things in the oven (without the skewers) for however long it says on your package of clay.

While your waiting for your things to bake you can cut up some skewers to be your sticks for the marshmallows. I made mine 15 cm (6 in) long.

And there you have it!! After everything has been baked you can find a little bag for your granola and stick your skewers into the marshmallow. If yours are loose I advise putting in a little bit of hot glue, but my fit snug without glue.

I have another post coming later to make up for yesterdays absence so stay tuned 🙂

Things To Do On a Hot Summer Day

Are you stuck inside with your fans on high because of the boiling hot weather? Well here are some ideas of what to do:

Read! Pretty self explanatory, but just go to your local library and pick out a couple books and hunker down inside for the day.

Do some shopping! Looking through a catalog and daydreaming is a great way to waste time.  😉

Play with dolls! (Duh)  XD

Colour! It’s a great way to relax and it’s even better if you have a book on audio tape to listen to while doing it!

Or take a zillion selfies on your phone. 😉
