Homemade FUN With KIDS

Posted on | January 13, 2011 | No Comments

I had a wonderful time recently playing with my 31/2 year old great niece Alayna.  I introduced her to Shadow Play. We both had a blast. All you need is a bright light (a good strong flashlight will work) and a white sheet.   Hang the sheet taut (we took a fitted sheet and stretched at around a couple of dining room chairs) and place the bright light behind you. Then make hand shadows or use the whole body!
 
Homemade Playdough (2 recipes)
All of the playdough recipes below are for children aged 2 years or older and require adult supervision at all times.

Rubbery Playdough

2 cups baking soda
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup cornstarch

Mix with a fork until smooth. Boil over medium heat until thick. Spoon onto plate or wax paper.

Nature’s Playdough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
beet, spinach, and carrot juice

Mix flour, salt and oil, and slowly add the water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until dough becomes stiff. Turn out onto wax paper and let cool. Knead the playdough with your hands until of proper consistency. Use as is, or divide into balls and add a few drops of the vegetable juices to make green, pink, and orange.
