For those of you who may remember, I reviewed WatchBot, the neat remote CCTV system for the home, and we really like it. Good functionality, 360 degree swivel of camera for viewing (via your computer or smartphone), and even a microphone/speaker so you can yell at people in your house from the comfort of…anywhere!

I call this ‘Coffee cup’ play dough recipe as well, since you can pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee, make this, and have it ready to play with by the time your cuppa has cooled enough to safely drink. So, so easy. […]
