(not the original author sharing this, but how it appears on my facebook).
I saw this lovely little post on facebook and thought I'd give it a go with Max one Saturday afternoon when it was just to the two of us.
We sat on the floor and started mixing our salt, flour and water.
Then it all went to pot in a matter of seconds!
Our mixture was a bit dry so I got up, went to the sink (which is right next to Max!) and by the time I'd added a bit of water to the cup and turned around......
Max had shoved half the contents in his hair and Athena (the dog!) had started eating the other half!
I managed to salvage some of the mixture and cleaned off Max's hands and as I went to put his foot in the remaining mixture, he managed to get the whole lot on the bottom of his foot... and then ran off!!
At which point I gave up!
Found Max by following the white footprint around the house and we settled for a play in the bath instead!
