When my children were little, we used to do all kinds of fun activities like making forts in the family room or making play dough. Here are a few recipes you can put in your file to use when you want to make some memories.
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups water
Place all ingredients in heavy bottomed sauce pan and heat over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Divide into 4 parts and add 6-8 drops of food coloring.
Store in ziplock bags.
GAK - (from my friend Bonnie Miles)
A. Mix together:
2 cups school glue (4 small bottles)
1 1/2 cups warm water
Add color and smiles
B. Mix together:
1 tsp Borax (like 20 mule team Borax)
1/3 cup water
Slowly pour "A" mixture into "B" mixture and mix with you hands until it thickens.
It is weird stuff and fun to play with.
I'm going to see if Grant and Cole would like to make it with me after work today. I'll let you know how it goes tonight and tell you how the recipes faired. Maybe we'll even post some pictures. Happy memory making!
