3 parts baking soda
1 part water
kool aid (your favourite colour)
The combination should form a dry paste. Spoon into ice cube trays (we have used heart shaped and star shaped trays, too) and freeze for 2 hours or longer.
Remove frozen shapes and place one or more in a bowl. Using an eye dropper, syringe or tablespoon, add vinegar onto the shape(s).
Watch what happens!
Our Favourite Playdough Recipe

You can use a variety of household utensils to play with the play dough. We have many cookie cutters, plastic cutlery, potato mashers and more to manipulate the play dough.

Music is an important part of Inspiring Minds; we love to sing. Many of our staff make up songs as we go through the day. Below is one we didn’t make up. It is the song we sing before lunch is served.
The Hungry Hungry Song
Hungry, hungry I’m so hungry
Table, table here I come!
I could eat a moose goose burger,
Fifteen pickles and a purple plum
Oysters, noodles, strawberry strudel
French fries, fish sticks, one red beet
Lamb chops, lamb chops, huckleberry mish-mash
All the things I like to eat.
