Fun for the Kids!

 Thursday, May 14

Here are some DYI recipes for fun kid crafts! Inexpensive and fun! Um except for maybe the clean up after the kids get done! Isn't it worth it? Wait, even better send the recipes with your kids to overnight stays with Grandma;)

Recipe 1
Mix 1 1/2 cups starch with enough cold water to make a paste. Slowly add 4 cups boiling water, stirring constantly. Cook until clear, avoiding too hot a fire. While still warm, stir in 1 1/2 cups soap flakes. Add 2 tablespoons glycerin. Add food coloring to portion which will be used immediately and store the remainder in the refrigerator in a covered jar. These paints work best on glazed paper such as shelf paper.

Homemade Chalk

What You Need:

  • Toilet tissue tube (or an ice cube tray to create smaller chunks)
  • Duct tape
  • Aluminum foil if you are using a toilet paper tube (or petroleum jelly if you’re using an ice cube tray)
  • Disposable plastic container
  • Plaster of Paris
  • Water
  • Liquid tempera paint
  • Spoon


Now What:

Cover one end of the toilet paper tube with duct tape. Loosely roll an 8- by-41/2-inch piece of aluminum foil and slip it into the tube so that it lines the inside, fitting snugly. (Or coat the inside of the ice cube tray with petroleum jelly.)

Set tube upright (duct tape side down) on protected surface.

In a disposable plastic container, help your child mix 1 cup plaster of Paris with 1/2 cup water. Stir slowly and thoroughly until plaster is dissolved, about 1 minute.

Immediately add 2 tablespoons paint (or more for brighter chalk color, but be careful it can stain). Mix thoroughly.

Spoon into the tube (or ice cube tray). Tap gently so mixture settles to the bottom.

Let dry overnight before using.


Play dough

3 cups flour
1.5 cups salt
6 tsp cream of tarter
3 tbsp oil
3 cups water
  1. Dissolve salt in the water.
  2. Pour all ingredients into a large pot.
  3. Stir constantly over medium heat until a ball forms by pulling away from the sides.
  4. Knead the dough mixture until the texture matches play dough (1-2 minutes).

Store in plastic container. Should last for at least 3 months


Silly Slime

What you Need(Corn Starch, Water)

Mix 1 cup of corn starch with 1 cup of water. Use your hands to mix it until it is a smooth texture. You can change the texture by adding a 2ND cup of corn starch. You can also add food coloring!

I found this cool site today called care.com. It's a website that you can search for childcare, nannies, senior care, pet sitters, and house keepers. I am looking for someone to sit for my dog over memorial weekend so I don't have to take him to the kennel. This site is awesome! You can sign up for free or with a fee upgrade to run background checks on all the peeps you are interested in hiring. You can also post on there that you are looking for an evening babysitter or like me a dog sitter for the weekend. When I searched in Topeka there were a lot of people looking for jobs as care givers and house keepers. Just wanted to share my new resource! Check it out!;)

Operation Weed and Seed, a U.S. Department of Justice community-based initiative, is an innovative and co mprehensive multi-agency approach to law enforcement, crime prevention and community revitalization.The strategy involves a two-pronged approach: law enforcement agencies and prosecutors cooperate in “weeding out” criminals who participate in violent crime and drug abuse, attempting to prevent their return to the targeted area; and “seeding” brings human services to the area, encompassing prevention, intervention, treatment and neighborhood revitalization

The first summer following the purchase of my home I found an abundance of beautiful purple flowers blooming behind my garage. Excited I got to work right away transplanting these flowers into my flower garden. I spent hours doing this! Proud of my find, I bragged to a co worker who is the daughter of a florist and an avid gardener. I invited her to my home to admire them with me. She took one look smiled and began to laugh, exclaimed "Victoria those are not flowers those are WEEDS!
