I've made several batches of play dough, which will stay at my house for children to play with when they come over. I've packed them in cans with lids. Rock painted the cans to match the color of the different play dough. 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup salt
Posted by: Antony Williams in Uncategorized Copyright©2010 Antony Williams A couple of days ago I came across a video on YouTube about “Water Marbles” . I’ve inserted it below…I recommend watching it…it’s excellent! It’s excellent because by time I had finished watching this I was both excited and confused. Confused because how could I not of heard of this experiment.
Ever hear of Cloud Dough? It's a wonderful sensory activity for preschool children. It feels like flour as you run your fingers through it, but the cool thing about it is that it is moldable too. My kids spent a good half hour playing with cloud dough. They loved it!

To set the stage for my little guys Outdoor Adventure Party, a mini campsite complete with kid sized tents was simply a *must*. I have always been fond of the fabric teepee tents seen in catalogs but thought a 'pup' tent would be a little more fitting for our 'camping' theme. Coming in at just under $9 per tent, these little pretend play structures are sure to provide hours of make believe fun! Begin with five 1 X 2 X 8ft furring strips.
Did you miss the previous post on How To Work With Cardboard ? I've been having some trouble getting my feeds out recently. New posts are published on the blog itself but aren't being picked up by the aggregators. Often, I find that I need to send out a new post before the old one gets picked up in tandem. Anyone having a similar problem? Anyway, today we're going to build a cardboard catapult.

Last year, the month before Christmas, I went slightly craft crazy and made a little birch village full of houses, barns and glittered animals. It was really fun to do – even if there was glitter for months to come all over the house. The best thing was it was an incredibly inexpensive project. I only had to buy crystal clear glitter and had everything else hanging around the house.

I remember last summer running across a blog post about making your own sidewalk paint for kids. I think it might have been Amanda Probst. Good idea! Never got around to it until this week.
This lovely picture puzzle is made from an old sticker of a cardinal, but you can use a new image instead. Apply the same sticker or transfer to a little box sized to hold the wooden pieces, tie a ribbon around it, and you have an exquisite small present. For a picture puzzle, use sets of six or 12 wooden blocks to evoke impressions of your own childhood holidays.
