Overview

949 Craft Recipes, Tips, Ideas and Fun Things to do with Kids

SNEAK PEAK:

1 -- 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.

-----------------------
2 -- 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.
-----------------------
3 -- NO COOK PASTE
A handful of flour
Water (a little at a time) until gooey
It should be quite thick, so it won't run all over the paper. Add a pinch of salt. Non-toxic. Great for pasting scraps of paper, old Christmas cards. Its not too sticky.

-----------------------4 -- 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. Not recommend for little ones who put everything in their mouths.

-----------------------
5 -- FLOUR AND WATER FINGER PAINT
1 c. flour 1 c. water 2 tsp. salt

Mix to consistency of thick gravy. Food coloring as desired Sm. margarine tubs work well for the
individual colors.
Mix flour, water and salt to make the paste the consistency of thick gravy. Sprinkle in the food coloring. Be sure to dress little ones in an old apron or shirt. Put spoonfuls of paint on kitchen table or sheets of butcher paper and let them create. Cleans up fairly easily.

-----------------------
6 -- CLAY
1 c. cornstarch
2 c. salt
Enough water to make a thick paste

Stir while cooking, and cook until stiff. Allow this to cool, and cover with a damp cloth until ready to use. Coloring may be added before cooking or when molded; let dry, then paint with water color. --HOW TO CARE FOR CLAY:-

Clay can always be broken up, dampened, and used again - even after it has been painted. When it has been used, but has not been allowed to become hard, poke holes in the clay with your finger or with a pencil, fill these with water (to restore the original dampness) and place in an airtight crock or in a galvanized pail with a tight cover. A damp cloth placed over the clay will help to keep it moist until the next time.

-----------------------
7 -- SPOOL KNITTER
Get an empty thread spool and draw center lines across the end. Drive four small-headed brads or common pins that have been cut with pliers, making them about 3/4-inch long into the spool. The illustration on the craft divider page shows the location for the pins.

-----------------------
8 -- KNITTER PICK
The knitter pick can be made by driving a fine brad into a handle that has been whittled round. File brad sharp, and bend slightly. A finer one can be made by driving a good-sized sewing needle into a stick, pulling it out, and forcing the eye into the hole. Heat point over flame, and when needle point is red hot, bend slightly.

-----------------------
9 -- SPRING POTPOURRI
4 oz. rosebuds
2 oz. lavender flowers 2 oz. deer's tongue herb 2 oz. peppermint
2 oz. calamus root
1 oz. black malva flower 1 oz. marigold flowers 1 oz. peony flowers
1 oz. bay leaves
20 drops orris root oil 10 drops blue lilac oil Mix all dry ingredients, then add the essential oils, which have also been premixed. Mix and store away from direct sunlight. Store in cool dry place. Use only glass, wooden or ceramic container and utensils. Add oils with an atomizer or spritzer or eye dropper. Age in airtight container for a few days to a few weeks - gently stirring once or twice a week.

-----------------------
10 -- A BIBLICAL RECIPE FOR EFFECTIVE CHILD TRAINING
1 gallon faith in God
7 cupfuls love for your child
1 cup patience
1 cup clarified instruction
1 cup consistent discipline (whipped

lightly)
3 teaspoons of pure mercy
1 generous dash of humor
2 cupfuls praise
2 cupfuls liberty
