|Three Ghost Friends Ornaments|
1. 2 Cups Baking Soda
2. 1 Cup Corn Starch
3. 1 1/4 Cup Water
5. Ribbon or pipe cleaners to hang the ornaments
6. Rolling Pins
|Only 3 ingredients are needed to make these ornaments - water, baking soda, and corn starch. First, mix the baking soda and corn starch together in a bowl. Then, mix in the water until smooth.|
|Add the mixture to a cooking pan. Then, cook over medium heat until it looks like mashed potatoes. (It took about 6 minutes for the dough to become the consistency of mashed potatoes.)|
|We placed the dough in a plastic bag and stored the dough in the refrigerator over night. The following morning we divided the dough and rolled it flat.|
|We used our hands to form the dough into ghosts and other shapes.|
|This recipe provided enough dough for my three children to make multiple shapes.|
|Once the ghost shapes were complete we put them on a cookie sheet and then placed them outside in the sun to dry. If you plan on displaying these as ornaments, make sure you poke a hole to thread a ribbon.|
|We even made a few "shape" ghosts from the eBook Three Ghost Friends: Learn About Shapes. Add ribbon or use pipe cleaners to hang the ghost ornaments.|
