Bath Salts
1 cup Epsom salts
Measuring cup
Lidded jar
Liquid Food Color
Pretty Container
A few drops of your favorite perfume
1/2 yard of 1/2" to 1" wide ribbon
Measure 1/2 cup of Epsom salt into a jar with lid. Add a few drops of food color and shake. (More can be added to get the color you want) Open the jar and let the salts dry overnight. Add a couple of drops of perfume to the bath salts, shake, and pour into a decorative jar. Put on a lid and tie with your pretty ribbon.

Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments
4 oz Cinnamon
1 Cup Applesauce
1 TBSP Nutmeg
1 TBSP Ground Cloves
1 TBSP White Glue
Mix applesauce with ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and glue to form a stiff dough. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutter. Make hole for ribbon hanger. Carefully put on rack to dry. Let air dry several days, turning occasionally. Makes 12 sweet smelling ornaments.

No Cooking Play Dough
1 Cup Salt
1 Cup Flour
1 TBSP Salad Oil
Food Coloring if desired

1 Cup White Glue
1 Cup Liquid Starch
Food Coloring

Bubble Prints
1 Cup Water
Food Coloring
1/4 Cup Liquid Detergent
1/4 Cup Liquid Starch
Paper for printing
In a 6" - 8" bowl, mix together water, drops of food coloring, liquid detergent, and liquid starch. Using a straw, blow bubbles into the mixture, until the bubbles form a structure above the rim of the bowl. Make a print by laying a sheet of white paper across the bowl rim, allowing the bubbles to pop against the paper. If the bubbles pop too quickly, add a few tablespoons of sugar to the water. This paper would be nice for stationery or envelopes.
Variation of Bubble Paper
Newspaper or brown craft paper
White paper or construction paper
Food coloring
Plastic drinking straw
Cover a work space with newspapers. Place white paper on newspapers. Put a large drop of food coloring in the center of the white paper. Holding one end of the straw above the drop of food coloring, blow through the other end of the straw. How hard you blow determines how far and how fast the drop of coloring moves. After blowing the 1st drop of coloring as far you want, do the same with more drops of color.
3-D Soap Paint
6 tb Liquid starch
1 c Biodegradable soap powder
Whip ingredients with beater. Mixture may be tinted with tempura.
Cloud Dough
3 c Flour
2 tb Powdered tempera
1/2 c Salad oil
Mix together the flour, tempera, and oil. Add enough water to make a soft, pliable, elastic-like dough.
This dough does not keep well.
