Crafts for Kids

This is not the described craft
 Untitled Document by Nicole Özturan

Peanut Butter Playdoh

A new twist on the traditional favorite. It is edible of course, though I wouldn't go eating it in vast quantities. You can use decorations such as raisins, pretzel sticks, oatmeal flakes, etc to enhance the experience. Any extra may be well-covered and refrigerated up to one week.

Equal parts of Milk Powder (sut tozu) and Peanut Butter
½ cup to ½ cup is normally a good ratio per child.
1 tablespoon honey

Note: You may substitute the Turkish version of peanut butter; hazelnut butter (findik ezmesi) It is sweeter than the traditional peanut butter, so you may want to skip the honey.

Normal Playdoh

1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon food coloring

Mix dry ingredients in a pan, add wet ingredients and mix together over medium heat. Continue cooking over a low to medium heat, until the mixture forms a gooey, sticky ball. The essential is to stir constantly, continuing to cook for about 5 minutes. Let cool as mixture will be very hot initially, ideally let cool over night. Kool-aid or similar powdered drink mix may be used in place of the food coloring. (not edible however).

A good deal of craft supplies may be found in Turkey. Toys R Us carries a nice selection of paints, oil pastels, pipe cleaners, etc. However some of the best supplies may be recycled from everyday objects at home. Dried foods such as pasta or beans, egg cartons, cardboard paper rolls, buttons, old magazines or newspapers, natural items such as leaves, pine cones, etc all make for excellent projects. That and of course a ton of child friendly glue.

Wax Paper Butterfly Window Decoration

2 sheets of wax paper per butterfly
Crayon shaving (Adults please use scissors or an appropriate knife )
Scissors
An iron
Some string to hang with

Fold one piece of wax paper in half, and draw half of a butterfly along the fold. Flip paper over and complete the other half using the original as your guide.

Open butterfly and lay flat. Using crayon shavings decorate the interior of the butterfly, as you like.

Cover the wax paper and shavings with the second sheet of wax paper. Using an old towel to protect your iron, iron the butterfly on lowest heat.

Cut around the butterfly form, and using a hole punch make a hole at the top. Add the string to finish and hang your beautiful new decoration.
