I made this Play-do and it was real easy and fun. 2 cups flour, 2 cups warm h2o, 1 cup salt, 2 tbsp cream of tartar, 2 tbsp veg oil. Mix on low till not sticking to skin. Divide and put in ziplock bags and drop in desired food coloring. Blend in color well. I stored mine in baby snack cups with lids from Dollar Tree. My kids love it. So what are you waiting for?
Make It: Have your kids search your backyard for twigs. Use outdoor trimmers to cut the twigs to the same size. Using jute or hemp cord, weave the ends of the twigs on both sides to tie them together. Attach a twig in an upright position for the mast. Cut a sail from colorful felt. Fold the felt in half, punch a hole in the middle, and slide it over the mast.
