I was in USA from 27th June till 22nd August enjoying my time with the most important person now in my life, my one and only grand daughter Amie. She turned three on the 18th August 2008. It was great fun trying out all types of art and craft with her while her parents were busy getting their new house ready.
It was raining outside and I was running out of idea when I remembered something I learnt in Thailand during a teacher exchange programme I attended in May 1988. They used to call it 'bread dough' and used real bread for making it but I improvised it and used plain flour. I also replaced poster colour and the synthetic resin adhesive Fevicol with Amie's acrylic paint.Here are the ingredients:
The dough turned out to be perfect for moulding and became hard and light when it dried. Once it became dry, it could be painted with poster colour. We made basic colour doughs, pink,blue,green and yellow by mixing white to get the desired shade.
The dough could be wrapped in foil/polythene and kept in the refrigerator for a few weeks.
