Water Muffins

I love love love water! Yesterday we went to the beach at Kleinmond, and I got to play in the water there. Then we came back to Ouma's house and I watered all her plants and the lawn and the pool and my feet and the patio with her hose. Of course I was sopping wet afterwards.

Today it is raining, so I don't even need a hose to get wet.

Speaking of getting wet, here is my recipe for Water Muffins.


1 Muffin Tin
1 Big Mixing Bowl
1 Small Mixing Bowl
1 Measuring Cup
1 Big Wooden Spoon
Ice Cubes (optional)

To Make:

  1. Set the temperature to a nice warm day.
  2. Have Mommy fill the Big Mixing Bowl with water (and ice cubes, if used).
  3. Use the Measuring Cup to carefully fill each muffin cup with Water to exactly overflowing.
  4. Pour the remaining Water into the Small Mixing Bowl.
  5. Stir the muffin cups and Small Mixing Bowl with Big Wooden Spoon.
  6. Put Water into Measuring Cup and taste it.
  7. Pour all Water on the floor for easy cleanup.
  8. Dance on floor, carefully to avoid falling.
  9. Mop floor with Mommy's assistance.
