I got this recipe from FamilyFun magazine and have used it on numerous craft products. The texture is so smooth, totally non-toxic, and not sticky like other papier mache recipes.

Recipe #38097

A no-cook sturdy clay thats great for playing and sculpting. It dries very hard overnight and makes rocky figurines and also makes very pretty earthy-textured beads. For a smoother clay, whir the oatmeal in the blender before mixing.

What happens to the Flubber when... it is stretched? it is rolled into a ball and bounced? it is stretched over the opening of the jar? an object (golf ball, etc.) is rolled on it? What else can you do with flubber? ...make it and find out! A Closer Look: Flubber is a polymer made by a chemical reaction. Polymers are very long chains of repeating units. When the two solutions are combined, polyvinyl acetate chains (a polymer from the white glue) are linked together in a 3-dimensional arrangement by borate ions (from the Borax) and other chemical bonds. This produces the thick, sticky polymer called Flubber. (You can get white glue in bulk from a school supplies source. Keep this stuff away from carpet and hair as it will stick. If necessary, white vinegar can act as a solvent.) Thanks to my cyberpal Julie for this recipe!

Such fun! Make your own volcano at home, the kids just love the eruption. My boys can never get enough. This isn't food, more of a science experiment & a great way to have fun with the family. One time we did this at a birthday party & let each child make their own. The dirt is optional!

Recipe #143184

This is a tried and true suet recipe that I found in Birds and Blooms Extra, contributed by Virginia Barnard. She explains that it works very well in Oklahoma's high summer temperatures. We live in Wisconsin, where it obviously isn't quite as hot, but it has held up here, even in direct sun. The squirrels like it too, but now that we're offering other food for them, a little ways away, they aren't bothering it as much as they were at first. The recipe is written for lard, but I used saved bacon grease and it has worked fine. The next time I make it, I'm going to experiment with less or none of the sugar, as it doesn't seem necessary. But, I guess maybe the birds could have a little sweet tooth, too! Note: yield is approximate. I doubled the batch last time I made it, and filled 2 quart ziplock containers after putting some in a feeder, so I'm not exactly sure how much I started out with.
