For those boring rainy days, put more excitement in them with a kid craft recipe. These are easy and can be done with your products around the house.

 

Kid Craft Recipes

PLAY DOUGH
1 c. salt
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. water
2 tbsp. oil
A few drops of food coloring
(optional)

Mix thoroughly and store in plastic bag or covered jar. Children can pull and pound it and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. If left to dry will harden and then it can be painted. Non-toxic.

Hint: If kids dust their hands with a little flour before play, the dough won't stick to their hands.

SOAP BUBBLES
1 c. soap flakes or 1/4 c. liquid dish soap
1 c. water
1/2 tsp. cooking oil

Mix in cup or old juice can. Give kids a plastic drinking straw. This makes a good bathtub toy or outdoor play idea.

SHAVING-SOAP FINGER PAINTS
Use 1 can non-mentholated shaving soap Powdered paint, sprinkled on will give delightful colors

This can be played with on paper, the kitchen table or counter. Be sure to dress the kids in washable paint shirts or aprons. Keep soap out of eyes. Do NOT put in mouth.

SOAP CRAYONS
One ice cube tray
Liquid food color
2 tbsp. hot water for each crayon
1 c. soap flakes
Small bowl
Spoon

For each color, put two tablespoons of hot water and one cup of soap flakes into a bowl. Add as many drops of food color to the mixture as you wish. Stir the soap mixture until it thickens. This takes time, so be patient! Press spoonfuls of the first color of soap into the sections of the ice tray. Mix enough soap in other colors to fill the ice tray, following the above directions again. Let the soap crayons dry for one or two days. Gently bang the ice tray to loosen the crayons. Pack them in a box for gift-giving. Great for birthday presents or holidays.
