Dancing With Elephants Listener Feedbag Show for Episode 068.
Thanks to everyone offering to lend us their Harry Potter 'Books on Tape'. We'll have to take some of you up on your offer.
Feedbag Roll Call:
Amy called with a suggestion for traveling with small children and called to tell us about 3 websites where you can get drive-in information: Drive-ins.com, Drive-in Theater.com, and List of active drive-in theaters. Check out The Car.
Jim of Iowa wrote to tell us that del.icio.us allows for notes.
Papabear called with some suggestions for finding audiobooks (Talking Book World has been forced to discontinue its business in the US) and wrote to tell us about the iPhone Clone. Check out Henson.com for a great behind the scenes podcast produced by Grant Baciocco of The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd.
Tina of tinatheartist.com wrote with her recipes for the sensory table:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp cream of tartar (optional)
Heat in heavy saucepan. Cook stirring constantly until forms a ball. Turn out onto floured surface and knead until desired consistency. Store in plastic bags or airtight container in refrigerator.
2 lbs baking soda
1 lb cornstarch
1 1/4 cups water
Cook until consistency of mashed potatoes. Can add more water if needed later.
2 parts white glue
1 part liquid starch
Mix until it achieves the 'right' texture. If the silly putty is too sticky then it's too gluey, add more starch. If the silly putty won't stick to itself then it needs more glue. Store in airtight container in fridge.
Water and cornstarch
Can't remember the proportions, play around with it. It should flow like a liquid but when you press it feel like a solid, you can roll a ball in your palms for example.
Dale of Tech Talk For Families called with a bone to pick about Dungeons & Dragons, The Dungeons & Dragons Cartoon, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends Cartoon, The Muppet Show, Battle of the Planets, and HDTVs. He also sent a link for making a ring out of a silver half dollar. Check out the TTFF Episode 11 interview with Jason Snell. Also check out Omni-Directional Treadmill. Did we mention Henson.com for a great behind the scenes podcast produced by Grant Baciocco of The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd?
Paul wrote Tonya with another Amazing Spider Catcher.
Finally, Mike of KidsWifeWorkLife called to suggest Heelys to make Caleb tall enough to ride the rides at Walt Disney World.
