Speaking of recipes....

Want to make your own non-toxic "modeling dough" to use with our Place & Trace puzzles/cookie cutters?

Here's how:
MEASURE the following ingredients
1 cup flour (be sure to use cup #12 in your Measure Up Cups's 8 ounces)
1 cup H2O (teach chemistry & math at the same time...fill cup #6 2x = 8 ounces)
1 T. oil
1/2 c. NaCl (that's sodium chloride, or table salt)
1 t. cream of tartar
food coloring
MIX all ingredients in a pan
COOK over medium heat until mixture pulls away from sides of pan and becomes doughy in consistency.
KNEAD until cool.
MODEL different colors of clay into any shape you can imagine!

Note: Can be used over & over again. Keeps 3 months unrefrigerated.
