Preschool Recipes

As I've attended the same preschool the past 5 years with my kiddos, I'm reminded of these FUN recipes for GUARANTEED fun with the kids by our AWESOME teacher. Just thought I would share :0

Water, White Glue, Borax, Food Coloring (optional)
Add 1 1/2 cups water to 2 cups white glue. Pour 1/3 cup warm water into 3 different cups. You may add 1-2 drops of food coloring into each cup. Stir 1 tsp of borax into each cup until dissolved. One at a time, pour the contents of each cup into the glue and water mixture. Mix until dissolved. Pour off any extra liquid and knead until smooth and no longer wet. Store in an airtight container.

3 cups flour
3 cups water
1 1/2 cups salt
3 TBL oil
6 tsp cream of tarter
Food coloring of choice
Optional: glitter, scents....use your imagination :)
Mix all ingredients in a large pan over medium heat until it forms a semi-sticky ball. Remove from heat and knead until smooth. Store in an airtight container.

1 cup Dawn or other high quality dish sopa
1 TBL glycerine**
1 gallon water
Mix and let stand overnight or for several hours.
**Glycerine can be purchased at a pharmacy...for a less expensive alternative, try corn syrup.

Water, Cornstarch
Mix 1 cup cornstarch with 1/2 cup water. Let the children play with it on the grass. Mixture will be hard until put in hands and then it becomes liquid again.
