The winners will be announced the following Monday. Details of each activity will be explained as it is published weekly.

Dabbling in Play Dough
Today is all about being creative! Here is a super, simple two-ingredient recipe for play dough. Ask a grown up for some help! After you have your dough made and have made some fantastic sculptures, send me a picture (email@example.com) that I can share on Facebook!
1/2 c hair conditioner
1 c cornstarch
** food colouring (optional)
Pour the conditioner in a bowl, add food colouring (if desired) and mix well. Add cornstarch to conditioner and mix together until a dough-like ball forms. That's it! Start getting creative!
