Childhood bliss scenario 1: Laying back, staring at the clouds, picturing shapes of ice cream cones, sea critters, and puppies floating by.
Childhood bliss scenario 2: Rolling, stretching, and squishing sculpting dough to the farthest reaches of your imagination.
Just in time for your child’s birthday, we’ve combined the two for the most dough-lightful Skye-themed activity!
Note: Traditional sculpting dough contains flour, which leaves out kids with wheat sensitivity so this is a gluten-free version. Rice flour can be replaced with all-purpose flour if this is not a concern for your group.
What You’ll Need
1 Cup White Rice Flour
1/2 Cup Cornstarch
1/2 Cup Salt
1 Tbsp Cream of Tartar
1-1/2 tsp Canola or other vegetable oil
1 Cup hot water
How to Make
Step One: Have the birthday child help mix the dry ingredients together. Grownups should then add the oil and hot water and stir to combine until the texture becomes dough-like.
Step Two: Once the dough is cool and dry, your child can add the glitter! Then, (as a mini math lesson), have your child separate into enough equal portions for every party guest.
Step Three: Wrap in light blue cellophane with a festive ribbon to add to goody bags, use as a base for place-setting cards, or pass out to kids at the beginning of the party as they wait for all the guests to arrive.
Take to the sky and let your child’s party guests’ creativity soar!
