In my previous Post I mentioned and linked up the recipe for the Soft Cloud Dough.
Conditioner + cornflour + glitter (optional) = hours of fun for a toddler
I always have bottles of conditioner lying around (half empty etc) so opted to use it constructively.
Recipe calls for 1 part conditioner & 2 parts cornflour. It may vary due to the type conditioners used (some are thicker others are runnier) I didnt keep track of how much I added of which. But used about 1/2 a box Maizena! Just keep mixing until it feels right – shouldnt be sticky.
We colored it PINK of course and added some pink glitter. Its really soft and smells divine.
Baking, Cooking, Playing
We made it on Thurs, Im sure if it stayed covered yesterday (which it didnt) it could last for quite a while!
I totally love love LOVE Pinterest. If only they would pay me to pin the whole day! There are so many fabulous ideas on there, food, home, decor, garden, kids, parties, the funny quotes etc etc. If only had a bottomless wallet and loads of time!
I found one ‘science’ project for Jessica some time ago – bicarb of soda and vinegar. You color the vinegar different colors (I do it in an old ice tray), then in a bigger container, you pour a thick layer of bicarb. Then with a dropper , drop the vinegar into the bicarb – it fizzes and bubbles and the colors mix etc. Jessica loves it. It can get messy, and somedays she put the bicarb into the vinegar and then it ‘boils’ over to her delight. Thats like a 30min activity for her!
Yesterday while taking a minute breather from work. I found another cool link for kids stuff Two Ingredient Crafts . I picked one yesterday – the bath paint. Easy peasy – shaving cream & food coloring! I made mine in a muffin pan. Jessica had such fun ‘painting’ the bath, a real Picasso! Dad was a bit apprehensive – I did borrow his shaving cream (I use the gel, not the same). It wipes right off and sommer colors the water at the same time 🙂
So for at least bathtime, it was a rustige tydjie! Got the piccie of the website…
Shaving Cream + food Coloring = Bath Paint and lots of fun for the kids
Next I want to try the Cloud Dough Conditioner (yes) + Corn Flour. Not edible though!! Will let you know how it turns out!
Soft as Cloud Play Dough
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
