Boredom Buster, make your own books!

This was such a fun project for my kids! They got creative and had a chance to use their brains while thinking it was all fun, I’m sneaky like that. ūüėČ

I found these awesome books at Target in the One Spot, but just in case they don’t have them at your Target, here are some that are similar, but in fun colors, which I really like.

Another great thing about these is that there aren’t a lot of products needed. Just the books, markers, crayons, or colored pencils and your imagination!

Here are some other thrifty summer fun ideas!

Matchbox Car Races, Thrifty Summer Fun

Looking for something fun and unusual to do with the kids today? We’ve got you covered with just the thing! ¬†All you need is a squirt bottle and matchbox cars. ¬†So easy and fun!

Line up your cars at the start line and have the kids race to see who can get their cars ahead by squirting them with water. ¬†Doesn’t work very well unless you have the water bottle on the straight shot as it needs the force to get the car moving.

Cloud Clay Recipe – So soft and only 2 ingredients and no cooking recipe

Fun kids craft idea

Watch our recorded Live video of making the Cloud Clay below

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

Cloud Clay Recipe

My kids love clay and play dough. I make it at home sometimes, or we buy it at the store.  BUT this recipe is like no other, and it is SO FAST and simple.  You only need two things to make it and there is NO COOKING involved.   It is the softest and easiest clay you will ever make!!!  My science project loving daughter had a blast making this recipe with her friend the other day.  It smells amazing and leaves your hands smooth and moisturized!

Please note… if you do not get enough moisture into t he dough it will be come crumbly MUCH LIKE MOON SAND. ¬†So you might want to have them play with it outside or on a cookie sheet for QUICK and EASY clean up.

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

All you need to make this Cloud Clay is:

Corn Starch

Conditioner

Food color and glitter are optional

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

You need 2 parts corn starch to 1 part conditioner.  I used 1 cup corn starch and 1/2 cup conditioner.  Please note that the brand you use might require a little MORE or a little LESS depending on how much water is in the conditioner.    When you first start to mix it,  it will appear that it is going to be too dry.  But just keep stirring and before long you will have a soft dough formed.

If you choose to add color or glitter you can do it two different ways.

You can add it to the dough ball once it is formed and mix it in. ¬†OR you can add it to the conditioner before you add the corn starch. I think it is easiest to add it to the conditioner … but the girls thought it was fun to add it at the end and see the “marble or stripes” it made.

Store in a ziploc bag, as the kids play with it it might dry out a little. Just knead in more conditioner to keep it soft and moist.
