with play dough.
I have a wonderful book, Clay Characters for Kids by Maureen Carlson. It has step by step instructions on how to create all kinds of fun things with clay.
Here's the recipe we used...
1 cup flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 Tbls. vegetable oil
Combine flour, cream of tartar, and salt together in a saucepan. Then, combine water and vegetable oil in a small bowl. Slowly stir liquid into flour mixture, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat until mixture pulls away from side of pan. When mixture is cool enough, divide into as many parts as you'd like and add food coloring. Knead until color is evenly distributed into dough. When finished, put into plastic bags to keep it fresh. Store at room temperature.
Here's what we created today...
How sad...It looks like this 'dude' had some bad plastic surgery!
