Cotton Ball Dough

Today we made Cotton Ball Dough. It is suppose to be light and puffy when shaping. When it baked your creation should be light brown, become hard, and keep their puffy look. Well it was interesting. The kids enjoyed making it. However shaping was almost impossible you couldn't shape it in to anything. We will paint them when they come out maybe then it will look something.
Here is the recipe if you want to give it a try
1 cup flour
3/4 to about 1 cup of water
Around 50 cotton balls

Other stuff to grab:
Mixing bowl
Mixing spoon
Baking sheet

You will also need an OVEN

1. In bowl mix the flour and water until smooth ( we had to add more water). But I was letting the kids do the work.
2. Add the cotton balls and stir
3. Make shapes and place on the sheet
4. Bake at 325 for 1 hour

I may try this again to make numbers and letters. Since we tried this with no real plan in mind.

This is the young ones did while the others followed the directions.
