Here are some more fun play recipes for you and your child to create! Have fun blowing bubbles and playing with squishy play dough, and more importantly – have fun with each other!

Super  Shiny  Bubbles

2 ½ qts. Water
½ cup light corn syrup
1 cup liquid dish detergent
A few drops of baby or cooking oil
bubble wands & bubble liquid containers (plastic strawberry containers and straws are great!)

Mix water, oil and corn syrup together until completely blended.   Gently stir in liquid dish detergent.    Store bubble liquid in airtight container.

Fruity Play Dough

2 ¼ cups flour
1 cup salt
2 tbs. unsweetened powder drink mix
4 tbs. cooking oil (can use baby oil)
1 cup water

Combine flour, salt, and mix in large bowl.   Stir in oil and water.  Continue stirring until mixture is consistency of bread dough.  Remove dough from bowl and knead on a floured surface 2-3 minutes until firm.  Store in zip lock.  (if sticky dust hands with flour)

Make learning fun!
