Make a craft crate:
Fill a plastic crate or box with:
white glue or glue stick
kid sized craft apron (recycle one of dads shirts)
Cut 5 felt circles. Place an old glove palm side up.
Glue felt circle to each finger tip. Cut felt pieces to make animals faces.
Glue them to felt circles. Let glue dry. Then put your hand inside glove and make your own puppet play.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
Food coloring by drops
Place contents in a pan and stir. Cook over low heat, stirring until a ball forms.
Add food coloring and mix thoroughly until desired color. Cool on foil. Store in covered container.
You can also add some cookie cutters ,and small cutting utensils with the playdoh.
One ice cube tray
Liquid food color
2 Tablespoon hot water for each crayon
1 cup soap flakes
For each color, put two tablespoons of hot water and one cup of soap flakes into a bowl.
Add as many drops of food color to the mixture as you wish. Stir the soap mixture until it thickens. This takes time, so be patient!
Press spoonfuls of the first color of soap into the sections of the ice tray.
Mix enough soap in other colors to fill the ice tray, following the above directions again.
Let the soap crayons dry for one or two days. Gently bang the ice tray to loosen the crayons.
Another idea is to put a small toy inside the soap for a surprise when the soap is all used up.
Pack them in a box for gift-giving.
