so making the 'mom im bored jar'
Painted sticks. What a great summertime project for kids. I can picture several of these on a wall, either grouped into an abstract design or formed into a frame around a picture. Could also use the sticks to spell out the child's name. Ideas are limitless. Jazzy quiff love this she is obsessed with sticks:)
Handprint Mitten...great idea for Grandparents!
1 c flour, 1 c water, 1/4 cup salt, 2 t cream of tartar, 1 T vegetable oil, 4 drops food coloring (Liquid watercolor could be used instead for more vibrant colors) & a few drops of baby oil can be added to add a really smooth & soft texture. Dump all the ingredients into your pot and give them a good stir. Put your pot on the stove and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it forms into a ball. As soon as it joins into one big glob, take it off the heat and dump it onto your counter or some wax paper. Wait for it to cool, then knead it a few times until it is nice and soft. This would make a perfect gift for any kid – not just for Christmas. Also birthdays, party favors, cousins, neighbors, anyone!
Such a cute Christmas gift idea!
