Make Your Own Bouncy Balls

Here are the little balls (eggs) we made this morning.  We named our bouncy balls dinosaur eggs because that is the theme we are currently working on.

Here is what we used:

1/4 Cup Warm Water
1/2 Tablespoon Borax

1 Tablespoon of Cornstarch

1 Tablespoons School glue

Food Coloring

2 Small bowls

In one bowl mix the borax and warm water

In the next bowl mix glue, cornstarch,  and food coloring

Pour the borax mixture over the glue mixture and let sit for 10 seconds.

Take the glue mixture out of the water and roll together to make a ball.

**Just an fyi this ball will not completely harden. You may want to store in a plastic bag.

Salt Dough Snowmen

How cute are these little guys? I was a little doubtful due to other salt dough fails but we had no issues.

I saw these snowmen at Dollar Store Crafts and had to give it a try. Click over and see how cute hers are.

We used:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
acrylic paint
2 toothpicks
Shapie

Make the dough by kneading together salt, flour, and water.

Next make three balls (I had kids do this part) and smoosh together. 

My kids also colored the toothpicks with a orange marker.

Stick the toothpicks and twigs into dough before baking.

I baked them at 250 for 3hrs and let cool

Painted white with acrylic paint.

I used a sharpie for eyes and mouth and painted on bottons and a heart.

Christmas Wreath Crafts

Look for two bowls a big one and a little one. Trace the big one then center the little one, trace, and cut the both out.

Pour some green paint in a bowl, dip the loofah in and dap it all around the white circle.

Use the red bingo dobber and let kids make berries in any pattern they wish.

Cut a red paper into one inch strips. Staple two together in a v as shown above. Then pull the two end down and cross to make a bow. Staple together and to the wreath at the same time.

Here is what we used:

Markers
Googly eyes

Paint both hands and try to position right. This is not easy with little ones, lol. That why my deer are flying 😉

Add the eye, then use marker to add extra details.
