My kids just started school in January. Well, one of them is no longer in school but that’s another story (stop by my blog for Parts 1-3).

These magnets would be a great gift and my kids would love making them. I can get all the ingredients in Mexico except the oven 🙂 Anyway that I could microwave them?

I now follow you via all social media (Sarah De Diego, Journeys of The Zoo @zoojourneys) except Instagram, your link is broken (I’m journeysofthezoo). Looking forward to connecting further.
