Children are terrible instructions, which all the time need to be something busy, otherwise, they will carry the whole house, decorate the wallpaper, and your dog will look like the canvas of an expert artist. And all parents constantly puzzle over what to entertain their child so that this does not happen. Some, of course, prefer to give your child a tablet or phone to entertain himself, but we suggest that you go creative and entertain your child with simple things that you can do with your own hands

Dough for molding that glows in the dark

We need:

  • UV lamp
  • Vitamins B2
  • Flour
  • Water
  • Vegetable oil
  • Cream of tartar
  • Salt

Cut 2 vitamins into powder (or pour the contents if they are in capsules). Add 2 cups of flour, 4 teaspoons of a tartar, 2/3 of a glass of salt and mix well. Then add 2 cups of warm water and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Stir well so that there are no lumps. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mass looks like plasticine and stops sticking to the pan and hands. Let it cool down and proceed. Turn off the light and turn on the lamp. Plasticine will glow in the dark!

“Frozen” Silly Putty

We need:

  • 100 grams of PVA glue, preferably not overdue.
  • 1.5 cups of water at room temperature.
  • Borax (in another way sodium tetraborate) in the form of a solution of 4% or powder.
  • Blue food color and sparkles
  • Utensils for mixing ingredients (bowl or plastic disposable dishes and wand).

If you have a drill in powder, dissolve a tablespoon in a glass of water. We take more dishes, stir ¼ cup of water with the same amount of PVA and drip a few drops of dye. We mix the mixture under point 2, gradually adding ½ cup of sodium tetraborate solution before the liquids are converted into a jelly substance. In general, the received mass is a lick. Before the game, rinse it underwater.

We need:

  • 3-4 glasses of powdered sugar;
  • gel food coloring (optional).

Whisk butter and cream over the mixer. Then gradually enter into the mass of powdered sugar, mix. The mass should become thick and dense enough for molding. In the end, add vanilla extract (optional). Knead the dough on a surface sprinkled with powdered sugar. Divide it into several parts, in each drop by drop of food coloring and mix again well (if you do not want to use dyes, you can leave a lot of white colors). Now you can start modeling – roll out a rolling pin, cut out figures or form them with your fingers, they are simply fastened together. And most importantly – all this can then be eaten.
