Recipes for Family Fun


Homemade "Goo"

8 oz of white glue



Food Coloring

Combine glue, food coloring and ¾ Cup of water in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix 1 tablespoon of borax and ¼ cup of water. Add this mixture into the glue mixture. Stir until a blob forms (will be pretty quickly). Remove the blob. Mix more Borax and water, repeat until glue mixture is all gone. Knead blobs. Tip: I knead my blobs over the glue mixture bowl so the excess water goes back in the bowl. Once kneaded, the mixture is more pliable and stretchy!

Kool-aid Playdough

1 c flour

1/2 c salt

3 T cooking oil

1 pkg. unsweetened Koolaid

1 c boiling water

Mix together flour, salt, oil, and Kool-aid. Add the cup of boiling water. Mix well. Knead the mixture until it forms a soft dough.

For a fun touch, add glitter to the finished playdough!
