Cinnamon Spice Craft Dough

• 1 cup apple sauce
• 1 cup cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon nutmeg
• 1 teaspoon cloves

Mix until the dough has the consistency of playdough, adding more apple sauce or cinnamon as needed. (Incidentally, I buy cinnamon at the dollar store for $1/ bottle.) Roll flat, dusting countertop and rolling pin with cinnamon if dough sticks. Cut out shapes with knife or cookie cutter. Use a toothpick to make a hole for hanging. Dry at room temperature for 5-7 days, turning over at the end of the third day to ensure even drying. They dry even quicker in a food dryer, and give your house a wonderful smell!

Kool-aid play dough

Here is another recipe for homemade play dough.  This one smells really good, too!  Store in closed container.

* 2 1/2 cups of flour
* 1/2 cup of salt
* 2 packages of dry, unsweetened drink mix (like Kool-aid)
* 2 cups boiling water
* 3 TBS of oil

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl (glass or metal as the drink mix can stain).  Mix the liquids together and pour them over the dry items.  Stir the mix until it forms a ball (may take a bit-keep stirring).  As the mixture cools, it becomes less sticky.  After it has cooled, take it out of the bowl and knead it until it’s smooth.
