...I haven't ever used these recipes but figured they fit the bill....
***Easy Fun Dough***
1 1/4 cups Bisquick
1/4 cup salt
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tsp food colour
Mix Bisquick, salt and cream of tartar in a 4-cup microwavable measuring cup. Mix water and food colour. Stir coloured water into dry mixture, a little at a time, until all liquid is added.
Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute. Scrape mixture from side of cup and stir. Microwave uncovered 2 to 3 minutes longer, stirring every minute, until mixture almost forms a ball. Let dough stand uncovered about 3 minutes.
Place dough on surface sprinkled with Bisquick. Shape into a ball; knead about 1 minute or until smooth. (If dough is sticky, add 1 to 2 tbsp Bisquick.) Cool 15 minutes. Use dough to make shapes and designs. Store dough in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
Easy Fun Dough can also be baked like cookie dough to make Holiday Ornaments. Just follow these directions:
Heat oven to 225F. After kneading and cooling dough, roll dough about 1/8 inch thick on surface sprinkled with Bisquick. Cut out desired shapes with cook cutters or instead of rolling dough, shape dough into desired shapes. Make a hole in top of each ornament using end of plastic straw. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 1 hour. Turn ornaments over. Bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer or until ornaments sound brittle when tapped.
Remove ornaments from cookie sheet with spatula to wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Tie ribbon or yarn through hole.
***Squeeze and Squiggle Paint***
1/3 cup Bisquick
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons tempera powder (any colour)
Glitter if desired
Stir Bisquick, salt, water and tempera powder until blended. Pour paint into plastic squeeze bottle with narrow opening. Repeat with different tempera powders to make more colours if desired.
Squeeze out designs onto paper or cardboard.
Immediately sprinkle glitter over paint. Let dry. Store paint in covered container at room temperature up to 5 days. Stir before using.
