At home today I have my 6 year old who feels sick, a 4 year old who has a water infection and a 9 month old with tonsillitis!!! So I wanted something simple to do today.
With that in mind I decided to bake cotton wool as it makes good boulders.
What you need is
•equal parts flour and water
•lined or greased baking tray
•food colouring if you wish
I got the ingredients ready and let my 2 year old mix them together.
Once all the mixture was used up I baked the cotton wool on gas mark 3, 300 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Once cooled you can play with with your cotton wool.
We used ours as boulders
