Here's a no-bake concoction very similar to an expensive toy store solution used to create rubber-like creatures.
What You Will Need:
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 Tbs. hot water
2 Tbs. white glue
1/2 Tbs. liquid tempera paint
Assorted candy molds
How to Concoct It:
1. Mix liquid tempera paint and white glue together in a bowl.
2. In another small bowl, mix gelatin and hot water together until gelatin is completely dissolved.
3. Add the gelatin/water mixture to the glue/paint mixture.
4. Stir until the concoction begins to thicken. This can take as long as 6 to 7 minutes.
5. When the mixture thickens, quickly pour it into a candy mold or cookie cutter.
6. Place the mold in the freezer for 5 minutes or until firm.
7. Carefully remove the Kookie Creepies from the candy molds or cookie cutters and allow them to dry for 1 hour on each side. Store in an airtight plastic zip bag.
Tips and Ideas:
- Play with Kookie Creepies just as you would any other kind of rubber-type creature.
- Allow Kookie Creepies to air dry for 2-3 days and they will transform into hard plastic like creatures.
