A fun activity to do with the kids is making your own play dough. Here is a recipe for play dough.
1 C. Flour
1/2 C. of Salt
2 tsp cream of tarter
1C. of water with food coloring
1 T. oil
Mix all ingredients together in a nonstick pan. Cook over medium heat until it forms a hardball, stirring constantly. Continue to stir until all parts are hardened.
While making the play dough you can use the opportunity to teach your child about colors and mixing colors.
