Aluminum foil and sharpies! Sometimes the best result comes from the simplest medium...especially with kids --------------- this was not actually done with a roll of "aluminum foil" but with heavier aluminum; such as pie pans cut up - still really cool
The first time I made a batch of playdough for my son I was amazed. Amazed that the recipe worked, amazed at how quick and easy it was and, mostly, amazed at how much nicer it was than the kind that comes in a can. Smooth, supple and soft, even months later. If you're still buying dough in a can, I urge you to convert. And there's a whole world of art supplies you can make in your own kitchen - some I've never even heard of like flubber, glurch, gak and oobleck.
