A crazy Kids Klub Fun Night!
Every so often, we plan a Fun Night for Kids Klub, something out-of-the-ordinary and unexpected (i.e. not advertised, lest we have more kids than we can manage). There were a few, though, who knew a “surprise” was coming and were fairly convinced they would be hunting for Easter eggs! Not this time…
Here is a group enjoying funny movie clips, popcorn, and lemonade in the basement:

And, finally, making play-dough from scratch:

Proud of the finished product:
If you’re interested in doing a play-dough project with your family or church group, here’s the super simple, el cheapo, single-serving, no-cook recipe we used. Disclaimer: I have no clue as to the life expectancy of this dough, but it does hold up nicely during a 10-15 minute craft session.

Prepare a small plastic bag for each child that contains:

– 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

– 2 Tbsp (1/8 cup) salt

Give each child a spoon and a small bowl, and instruct the children to pour the contacts of the bag into a bowl.

To each bowl, add:

– 2 Tbsp (1/8 cup) water

– 1/2 tsp vegetable oil

– 1 or 2 drops of food coloring

Stir the mixture with a spoon until a ball forms, then remove the dough from the bowl and knead it until smooth and a nice consistency. More flour or water can be added as needed if the mixture is too sticky or dry. Play with the dough, then plop it back into the baggie to take home!
