  1. My girls are currently on the porch playing with this thinking I am the smartest mom ever! Thanks Crystal!

  2. I made this right away this morning while I was doing some last minute packing before starting to load the uhaul… it kept my 3 year old occupied for an hour! She made birthday cakes with silicon muffin cups, towers, houses, walls, and tons of other things. It was wonderful. She can’t wait to do it again tomorrow. 🙂 THANK YOU! I totally subscribed to the TinkerLab emails!
