This will be a fun alternative activity for kids this summer! You can only read so many books, play so many board games, sing so many songs, built so many crafts and learn so many new tricks to play on people before you start getting into trouble! So...I am including this recipe in my book of homemade fun stuff. These are very inexpensive to make, and really fun to play with. I would suggest a grown up's shirt as a smock and maybe even doing this outside!

3 Tbsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
cornstarch
2 c
water
1 pinch
dish detergent

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine ingredients in a small saucepan. Warm until the mixture thickens.
2
Pour into containers. Add a different color of food coloring to each one to have colors. If you are short on colors, but have primaries(red, blue and yellow) you can make others by combining colors.
3
red + blue = violet (or purple depending on the amount of each.

Yellow + blue = green (You can make a brighter lighter green by adding more yellow.)

red + yellow = orange

Have fun!
