Potato Stamping and Making Play doh

Potato Stamping!

 I give this activity an A-. It was fun, easy, and safe. Of course as with all paint projects, clean up takes a bit.

Home made Play Doh

 I give this an A. It was so easy to make. Two weeks later and the dough is a bit sticky (think biscuit instead of dough). Was excellent for about a week! Tastes awful FYI.

  • 2 cups water
  • Saucepan
  • Food coloring, tempera powder, or Kool-Aid powder for color
