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.

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, #KidsYou 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.

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.

My kids are so excited about Mother’s Day, and they want to make a “project” or gift everyday to give me or their Grandma’s this weekend.  If you are looking for a fun Mother’s Day craft project for your  kids then you will love these corner book marks.

All you need is an envelope, pair of scissors, and crayons.

You need to keep the corner in tack (so when you cut it out, it creates a pocket).  Have your kids draw shapes like hearts or flowers on the corner of the envelope.  Use crayons or markers to decorate them.  Cut them out, this will create a pocket to slip the corner of the the book page into.  Simple as that you have a personalized gift for Mother’s Day.

Fairy Godmother Wand ~ Cinderella Party Ideas

Bibity Bobity BOO…. how many of you danced around singing that song when you were little? I know I did, and now my girls sing it too. If you are going to have a Cinderella party and need a fun craft or party favor gift idea this is a low cost but fun project to do.
Supplies Needed:
White tapered candles (found at Dollar Tree)
Silver Extra Fine Glitter (found at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby)
Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive (found at Hobby Lobby)
Additional supplies needed:
• gloves
• parchment or wax paper
• scissors

Cinderella Party Ideas, Fairy Godmother Wand , Have Courage and be Kind, Recipe DIY ideas for Disney Princess themed Birthday Party treat

Directions:
1. Cut the wick off the top of the tapered candle using a pair of sharp scissors. Since this is for play, it won’t end up being lit so the string is not needed.
2. Lay down a piece of wax or parchment paper on a table. This will serve as an area to place your candle on once sprayed. It will allow the candle to not stick to the surface. Note: I highly recommended spraying the adhesive outside to avoid surrounding surfaces to become sticky.
3. Spray the candle using the spray adhesive in small and sort bursts (remember to hold the can at least 6 inches away from the candle to avoid large globs of adhesive).
4. Sprinkle some of the glitter on top of the area you sprayed with the adhesive. Allow to dry.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the entire candle is covered in glitter.
6. Allow to air dry completely before play. You can also give the entire candle one last spray of adhesive to ensure all the glitter is sealed.
7. Wrap a cute bow around it and it is ready for play!

Cinderella Party Ideas, Princess Bark, Have Courage and be Kind, Recipe DIY ideas for Disney Princess themed Birthday Party Cinderella Magical White Chocolate Bark

Princess themed parties are a common occurrence in our house since we have 3 girls. I took my girls to the new Disney film Cinderella. They LOVED it, and I did too. My 7 year old has already informed me that she would like a Cinderella princess themed party for her 8th birthday party. SO it is time to start gathering ideas (easy ideas are my favorite lol) so I will be ready for her birthday in a few months.

For more ideas be sure and follow our Cinderella Party Ideas  board on Pinterest.  You might also like our Frozen Party Ideas post if you have Disney Frozen fans in your house.

cinderella barkSupplies Needed:
• Light Blue Candy Wafers
• Bright Blue Candy Wafers
• Bright White Candy Wafers
Blue Sixlets
Silver Pearlized Sugar Sprinkles

Other Supplies Needed:
Wax Paper
Microwave Safe Cup or Bowl
• Mixing Spoons
A Cookie Sheet

Cinderella Party Ideas, Princess Bark, Have Courage and be Kind, Recipe DIY ideas for Disney Princess themed Birthday Party treat ideasDirections:

1. This step not necessary but makes clean up SO much easier. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper with the wax side facing up.
2. Get 3 bowls to melt your chocolate in, you will want to melt them in different bowls. I guess you could wash the same bowl 3 times… it is up to you.
3. Choose which color will be your “base” and melt that one first in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until the chocolate is melted.
4. Pour your melted chocolate onto your wax paper and spread evenly across the wax paper using a spoon to make a nice thick base layer that is even thickness across.
5. Melt your next color using the same method in step number three. BUT instead of spreading it you will now drizzle this color on top of your base color so the base color can still be seen.
6. Repeat step number five using your final color of candy wafers. HURRY on to the next step as you chocolate still needs to be warm in order for the balls and sprinkles to stick.
7. Place your blue sixlets on top of the melted chocolate. If your chocolate hardens, the sixlets will not stick.
8. Sprinkle your silver sugar sprinkles over the top again ensuring they stick to the chocolate.
9. Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator for 1-2 hours until the chocolate has completely hardened.
10. Once it is cool, take the edge and snap a piece off.  OR you can use the backend of a spoon to break the chocolate bark into smaller pieces.

Here is another fun way to use those Easter Eggs laying around your house from last week. In about 30 seconds you can turn them into tools to help your kids learn.  All you need is a sharpie…. Write the time on one half and a clock showing that time on the other half.  To make it a little more difficult you can match eggs that are NOT the same color.   You can hide the eggs around the room before they start to get a little exercise in as well.

More activities, projects and fun things to do with your kids.
