HOMEMADE RECIPES FOR FUN

Homemade Playdough

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp food colouring
  • 2 tsp oil

METHOD:
In a medium saucepan, combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar. Over medium heat, stir in water, food colouring, and oil. Stir continually over medium heat (the mixture easily burns on the bottom so be careful), until it forms into a sticky, gooey ball.

Remove from heat and let it cool for 15-30 minutes. Store in airtight container.

 

Homemade Silly Putty

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup Elmer's glue
  • 1 tsp food colouring
  • 1 cup liquid starch

METHOD:
Pour glue and coloring into a plastic container. Stir until the color is thoroughly mixed in.

Add starch a little at a time, stirring with a spoon or kneading with your fingers as mixture thickens. Keep stirring until mixture holds together like putty.

TEST WITH YOUR FINGERS:
If it is too sticky, add more starch in small amounts until the mass is smooth and rubbery. Store in airtight container.

Homemade Bubbles Without Glycerin

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 cups room-temperature water
  • 2 cups liquid dishwashing detergent
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup

METHOD:
Combine water and detergent in a large container – a 4L plastic milk jug with a lid works well. Add the corn syrup. Close the container and gently shake and swirl the liquid around. For best results, do not overshake the solution to create a lot of white bubbly foam.

 

Homemade Bubble Wands

RECYCLED HOUSEHOLD ITEMS:

  • plastic six-pack holder rings
  • cookie cutters
  • pipe cleaners
  • plastic water bottles with the bottom cut out (blow from the mouth piece)
  • wire clothes hangers bent into creative shapes
  • string

There's no limit! Many household items can be converted into bubble wands. And the kids have so much fun!

KID'S BOOK REVIEWS WRITTEN BY AND FOR CHILDREN

Guess what? I'm going to share with you an amazing story called Diary of a Wimpy Kid (book 1) by Jeff Kinney.

The two main characters are best friends Greg and Rowley. I'll tell you a little bit about them right now!

Greg Heffley is a teenager who thinks he can do many things but always seems to end up in a big problem or great mess. It is his diary that we get to read, all about his troubles during the day.

He gets bullied because he thinks, believes, and writes in his diary. Only thing is, Greg has to or he will get grounded! He only agreed with his parents because he thinks he will be famous one day and he wants to give his diary to his fans. Problem is, he asked his mom for a journal but she went ahead and got him a diary instead.

Rowley Jefferson, a teenager who acts like he's a 3yr-old is also the strangest boy anyone has ever met – he likes a singer for 6yr-old girls! – and he is always able to crank up a dance party. Like Greg, he gets... READ MORE

YOUR TEEN ON BOOKS

Teenage columnist Mackenzie Hendry recommends 'Perfect' by Natasha Friend as a must-read about eating disorders for mothers and daughters.

Perfect by Natasha Friend opens up the real world of eating disorders that many teenaged girls face along with millions of other people. This book focuses not only on the struggles of one girl's disorder, but also about coping with death and finally finding closure. The reason I like this book is that it is a story that nearly everyone can relate to.

Almost half of western society knows or is related to someone with an eating disorder – I am one of them.

Isabelle Lee used to be like everyone else. At least, until her father suddenly passed away and her family turned upside down. Her mother begins suffering from depression and Isabelle refuses to cope with her father's death by eating away her problems, forcing herself to throw up, and pretends everything is completely fine. When her mother catches Isabelle with her head in the toilet, she signs her up for group therapy. Imagine Isabelle’s surprise when the most popular girl at school is also there! It turns out that she has the same problem and the two of them quickly bond – by eating excessive amounts and vomitting together... READ MORE
