Play Dough Recipe
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 cups water
4 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup cream of tartar
Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan. Cook and stir over low/medium heat until play dough is completely formed and no longer sticky. Allow to cool slightly before storing in an air tight container or zip lock bag.

HINT.....
Add one package of unsweetened powdered Kool-Aid to your playdough to give it a great smell.

The kids and I made this yesterday..it's easy and fun

I made this about a month ago for my nieces. They loved it! It really was just like the real thing only smelled yummy!

I also made "puff paint". Ever done that? That is so cool!!!

I've made this before, both with and without the kool-aid and it's always a big hit! Very easy and fun to make with kids!

How do you make "puff paint?"

You will need: -White glue--non toxic of course; Shaving Cream; Food coloring; Paint brushes.

I don't use measured amounts. Sorry!!! Just wing it!

1. First, add some glue into a small disposable container.
2. Then add food coloring to the glue.
3. Next, add some shaving cream to the glue and food coloring mixture.
4. Stir until all shaving cream is colored, You might have to add more food coloring.
5. Make all sorts of different colors in separate containers.
6. Make sure they paint it on THICK so it is puffed up off of the paper.

It will take about 24 hours to thoroughly dry. Don't let the kids touch it while it is still wet, it will deflate! I traced their hands on construction paper and they painted them. They really were very cool!!

How old are they? One thing the younger kids loved was putting colored water in soda bottles. Then they would put confetti glitter and such inside. I would then close the lid and put hot glue aroung it. Gosh Im not sure exactly how to make silly putty but I know it was liquid starch and elmers glue. I will have to look it up to find out how much of each.

I could never use that stuff; by the time I'd finished molding my masterpiece of a sculpture, the dogs would have eaten it.
