This is another one of my aunt's recipes. I have also never made this one (although I would like to sometime when I get a chance). I have given an estimate for the time and the serving size. Please write a review if you like these and find something else that would taste good for a dipping sauce. I hope that you enjoy these. :)
There are other recipes for Flubber here, but this is the one I always use. From the Children's Museum of Houston. Great to do with the kids. Educational, too: "Combining the borax and glue with water causes a chemical reaction that forms a new compound with its own unique characteristics. Notice how the flubber can be molded and then returned to its original shape unlike glue, which becomes solid, or the powdery borax." I always buy school glue on sale before school starts and save it to make this through the year. I have never had this stain and it is easier to clean up than playdoh. Most fun at room temperature. Would be great as a party favor.
This treat can serve as edible play dough (just make sure the kiddies wash their hands before playing with it). Children can mold and shape while eating it. It's a great after school snack. Store extra portions in plastic bags in refrigerator or freezer.
I made this often as a preschool teacher and now make it regularly with my own children. Smells great and you can vary the colours depending on which flavour kool-aid you choose. My little girls current favourite is grape as it makes "purple playdough!" At Christmas we make it red or green and add peppermint extract and glitter! Orange at Halloween and we even found some Halloween coloured glitter.Pick up some seasonal cookie cutters from the dollar store and your all set. Lots of possibilities and FUN!
This spray works equally well on monsters and bad dreams. We spray it as part of the nightly bedtime ritual, while DD chants, "Monsters, Monsters, stay away." The lavender scent is calming and everyone knows that monsters and bad dreams hate that smell. This spray saved us from lots of tears and terror at bedtime and in the middle of the night.
Posted by request; this is from an old arts and crafts recipe book. I've used it for making cardboard and cloth/paper book projects with the kids, though I haven't tried to repair actual books with it so can't vouch for that. According to the recipe, it is excellent for binding leather to leather and is a flexible glue for paper or gluing cloth to cardboard, etc. This makes about 1/3 cup; you can double it for larger projects.
This is a craft recipe for fake blood. Got a Halloween costume, school play, haunted house, or you feel like leaving work early and you need some fake blood that looks realistic and doesn't taste half-bad? Here it is...
This is something fun to do with your children (or yourself) in the winter. It will keep you entertained during those snow days off of school or work. You could even have an art expo in the neighborhood. I saw this in MetroParent magazine.
Was looking for a different craft for my students to do in Catechism class and found one that uses colored rice. Coloring the rice was so easy and perfect for our Easter craft. Recipe originally came from www.dltk-kids.com, but I mixed up the food coloring to get some different shades.
