Craft Formulas

For Tots

 

 

 

 

 

PAINTS

8 tbsp. powdered paint
1 tsp. white glue
2 tbsp. liquid starch
3 drops oil of cloves
(obtainable from any drug store)

 

INSTANT PAINTS

RECIPE 1

Mix a few drops of food coloring to a small amount of liquid starch.

 

RECIPE 2

Mix egg yolk, dry detergent and food coloring. May be used on glass, foil or shiny paper.

 

FINGERPAINTS

RECIPE 1

Mix 1 1/2 cups starch with enough cold water to make a paste. Slowly add 4 cups of boiling water, stirring constantly. Cook until clear, avoiding too hot a fire. While still warm, stir in 1 1/2 cups soap flakes. Add 2 tablespoons glycerine. Add food coloring to portion which will be used immediately and store the remainder in the refrigerator in a covered jar.

These paints work best on glazed paper such as shelf paper.

 

RECIPE 2

In a double boiler, mix 1 cup cornstarch (or laundry starch) with enough cold water to form a smooth, thin paste. Add 1 cup flaked soap chips and 1/2 cup salt (which acts like preservative). Add 1 quart water and cook until thick (increase amount of water if necessary). Beat with an egg beater, and place mixture in empty baby food jars, adding food colouring to each jar.

One teaspoon glycerine makes mixture more pliable and easier on the hands. Vanilla or oil of cloves can be added to mixture to create a nice smell.

 

RECIPE 3 ( no cook)

Mix 6 tablespoons dry laundry starch with just enough cold water to make mixture liquid and smooth. Pour this mixture slowly into 1 quart boiling water, stirring well until thick. Add a drop of oil of cloves and mix again. Divide into portions (a muffin pan is a good holder) and add food coloring.

 

SOAP-BUBBLE-BLOWING LIQUID

Mix together gently:

4 cups water
12 teaspoons glycerine
8 teaspoons liquid tincture of green soap (available from drugstore but as a substitute, grate or grind very pure toilet soap and use 8 teaspoons of the resulting powder)

Let liquid stand for 24 hours before using.

 

MONSTER MAKE-UP

1 tsp. fuller's earth (available from drugstore)
1 tsp. plain yogurt
1 tsp. water
A few drops of food coloring

Lightly apply to face, avoiding areas around mouth and eyes. (Use lipstick and/or eyeshadow for these areas).

Make-up will wash off with water.
