Bath time Finger Paints
1/3 cup clear dish detergent
1 Tbsp cornstarch
Food coloring

Mix detergent and cornstarch together in a small bowl until blended. Pour the mixture into different small dishes(maybe an ice cube try). Add 1 to 2 drops of food coloring to each dish and mix with a small spoon.

Elmer’s glue
liquid cornstarch

Mix equal parts glue and cornstarch to make your own silly putty.

1/2 c. liquid dishwashing soap
ย 2 tsp. sugar
1 1/4 c. water
Combine ingredients and mix in a bowl. This recipe yields 1 3/4 cups of bubble mix. Reuse old bubble bottles and wands for storage and use.

Peanut Butter Playdough
1 jar of Peanut butter
6 tsp honey
non-fat dry milk to make desired consistency

Mix all theย ingredientsย together! Can use raisins, chocolate chips cookies to play with and the kids can eat it too!

More ideas will be coming soon!

    others. My grandson and I are going to try each of them.

  3. I love all of these. Will definitely try the Peanut Butter Playdough. I made my girls playdough with flour, salt, & koolaid. They wanted to eat it because it smelled so good. So at least this ones is edible. They love all of the homemade things. They think it’s fun when you “cook” something that they can play with.

  4. i remember doing the elmer’s glue and cornstarch when i was a kid… and i’ve always wanted to do the peanut butter honey dough and then gross the unaware people out by eating it… but then, i’m weird like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. These are great ideas, but I’ll have to make sure not to mix the edibel ones with the non-edible, perhaps use them on different days.

  11. My little nephew and niece enjoy spending time at my house, so I am always looking for fun things to do with them. I am going to print out these recipes for fun. I especially like the bathtime finger paints. Thanks so much for sharing.

  12. I love these ideas, especially the silly putty one. I remember loving to play with silly putty and the newspaper, but it would always get ink into it and ruin it. It wouldn’t be such a big deal if you could make your own! It’s gotten expensive at the store.

  13. i love the idea of homemade bubbles and peanut butter playdough, i’ll have to try it sometimes in the weekends with my son

  14. I’ll have to try these ideas with my 2 year old grandson. One thing he loves is when I put shaving cream in his bath water with a few drops of food coloring. he then “paints” the walls.

  15. I have used some of these ideas before when I was a pre-school teacher. I also used them as a parent. I had not heard of the fingerpaints, so I guess i can use this with my 4 year old grandson! Thanks!

  17. These are great ideas for my Grandchildren and most important
    they are safe for them. Thank you very much for the great post.

  18. great ideas but elmers glue to play with? not sure. And I hope the peanut butter on have separate one to play and one to eat. I am a germ freak and would worry about it gettung dirty if u play with it before eating. Does it draw a lot of ants? I would imagine you can’t save this one
