Fun Recipes For The Little Ones

I am already thinking about this winter and being closed up in the house and how boring it can get. I have found a bunch of recipes to make things for little ones. Stuff that they can use and have fun with and parents not worry about them being toxic or unsafe. YAY!!

Simple Play Dough

1 cup flour

2 cups oatmeal

1 cup water

Gradually add water to flour and oatmeal in bowl. Kneed until mixed (this dough is sticky, but unique in texture.) Model as with clay.

Salt Dough

Equal amounts salt and flour; then add enough water to make it doughy. Dries hard in a couple of days and then you can paint it. I love salt dough. You can make some really nice Christmas ornaments out of it. Painting them makes them really nice. The kids could make some for gifts, maybe?

Earth Friendly Goo

1 cup water

1 cup cornstarch

4-5 drops fruit juice like blueberry or raspberry (combine a 1/4 cup of the food with 2 cups water, simmer for an hour. Cool, strain, and use as coloring).

Work the ingredients together and let your kids have fun with this gooey concoction.

Natural and Safe Finger Paint

1/3 cup soap flakes melted with 1/2 cup boiling water

1 cup cornstarch

1/3 cup cold water

A few drops juice dyes (combine a 1/4 cup of the colored food like beets, blueberries, or raspberries with 2 cups water, simmer for an hour. Cool, strain, and use as coloring).

Silly Putty

2 cups white school glue

1 cup liquid starch

Mix together and set aside until dry. Store in an airtight container.

Peanut Butter Play Dough

18 oz. peanut butter

6 tbsps. honey

Non-fat dry milk

Cocoa for flavor

Mix all ingredients, adding enough dry milk to give make dough pliable. Shape, decorate with edible treats, and eat!

These are some really fun things for kids to do. When they get bored let them try these things out. Before they know it the day has passed and they forgot that they were bored.
