First put all the ingredients in a pan and cook them over medium heat. Stir real hard for about 7 minutes or until it gets firm. Next, remove the pan from the stove and let it cool down for about 5 minutes. Put the dough on the counter and knead it for about a minute.  THERE! Now you've made some Play-with-me Playdoh!

Tie-Dye Rocks

  These are terrific! They are so easy and fun to make & sell great at craft fairs!

Crayons (Crayola brand works best)
Smooth, round river rocks

First, go to the river and collect some rocks. Round ones work best. Then wash them real good to get all the dirt off. Put them in the sun to dry. When they are dry put them on a cookie sheet. Put them in the oven for 2 hours at 200 degrees. While they are heating up, collect all the broken crayons that you can possibly find and put a bunch of newspaper on the table. After 2 hours use an old potholder and carefully put a rock on the table. Pick a light colored crayon and cover the rock with that color. The crayon will melt quickly on the hot rock. Be careful not to touch it. After you get the rock covered, choose a dark colored crayon and draw a circle on top. The melting crayons will run into each other making a tie-dye look. You can add more colors letting each of them run into the others.

Some tricks I have learned:
*If you hold crayon down on rock for a long time it will get more juicier and the colors will run into each other better. 
*White crayons add very nice contrasting looks.
*Use Glitter Crayons to make your rock sparkle.

*When dry and cool take an old cloth and rub them till they shine.
