So I saw this project in Family Fun Magazine and I knew the girls would enjoy it:
We mixed some water and cornstarch until we had a nice glue:
Then the girls cut pieces of yarn:
They had a great time dipping the yarn in the glue and placing them inside cookie cutters:
After placing the yarn (the girls used a LOT of it), you carefully remove the cookie cutters and let the shapes dry. We dried them in a low temperature oven for about an hour....
After they came out they were rock hard and the girls were able to use them as decorations :-)
The three of us gave this craft a thumbs up. We had all the supplies already on hand and even though the glue was kind of messy, it cleaned up very easily since it was just cornstarch. We will be making these again with different colors and different shapes really soon :-)
