Plenty of cotton balls Flour Water Food coloring Cookie sheet sprayed with Pam or other no-stick cooking spray
Mix 1 cup of flour with enough water to be a thick cake batter consistency. Add a food coloring of your choice, adding enough to get the desired color. It will dry darker.
Do this for as many colors as you'd like. We usually have at least 5 or 6 different colors.
Dip cotton ball in flour mixture then place on sprayed cookie sheet. You can make any shape you'd like. You can make rainbows, flowers, snakes, animals, or whatever. You can use a cookie sheet for one design if you want a really big one.
For animals, if you want eyes or some other small feature, cut a cotton ball in half or fourths.
If you plan on hanging your design on a nail or hook, make sure you poke a large enough hole in the top cotton ball. Since they puff up when you bake them, make it a bit larger than you really need.
Once you have your design on the cookie sheet, place it in the oven on 300 degrees and bake until your design is hard. Since oven temps vary, check it periodically to make sure it isn't burning. You may need to turn your oven up or down, depending on how well it's cooking.
Once it's done, remove from oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes. Using a metal spatula, remove from cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack to finish cooling. These will be extremely hot, so be careful!! Make sure you are involved in this step if your kids are doing the rest of it by themselves.
