After Squid’s fantastic review of the book the other week, she plunged in and had a kool-aid hair dyeing party with seven girls (Brave woman, and awesome photos!). Kimmy Lou Who also had the kool-aid hair-dye bug, and Meredith O’Brien is taking on the challenge as well, in addition to also making a lava lamp and a decoupage bowl with her kids. Over at Zen Sarcasm, Madame Meow is planning to study the art of the Japanese tea ceremony, and challenges her readers to try something they’ve always wanted to do. Emily at Design Her Mama discovers that hula hooping is hard work, and The Full Mommy wants her daughter to learn to throw a good spiral (eventually!). At Simple Things, Mojavi suggests a “hang a spoon on your nose” challenge (and also challenges her playgroup to dye their kids’ hair red, white, and blue in a July 4th kool-aid hair dye extravaganza). Kate at Mother Words makes some awesome friendship pins, and at Noteworthy, Kyran Pittman writes a thoughtful post about daring things she did as a young daring girl (complete with a picture of her at 10, with her dad, using her very own machete) and asks her readers to share a bit about their own daring pasts.
