I'll post the instructions once I get Chase to bed tonight, it was so much fun!
1 cup self rising flour
3/4 cup salt
3/4 cup water (more if too thick)
Washable Paint, food coloring, or natural dyes
A bit of baking powder
Mix all ingredients together. A bit of baking powder here will add more puffiness! Pour into a bottle.
I used a glass photo frame and we painted directly on it (you can use cardboard as a base too). Have children gloop the paint on the base. Yes, I said gloop! Use whatever you want to get it on there! Cover the whole base without mixing too much or it turns icky colors.
Place base in microwave and at one minute intervals, heat for 4-6 minutes until dough is cooked. It will be HOT!
This should be fun for kids of all ages, I know I enjoyed it!
