Kool-Aid Playdough

At the beginning of the school year I made homemade playdough for all of my students. I made it with Kool-Aid and made a variety of batches that were different colors. I then rolled up small balls in one color and then wrapped the ball with another color so that you couldn't see the previous color of playdough. I put each ball into a plastic bag and gave each of my students a bag. I told them that if the play dough changed colors after they played with it then they were going to have a great school year. It was fun watching their excitement as they were amazed by the playdough changing colors.

Here is the Kool-Aid playdough recipe:

*2 1/2 cups flour
*1/2 cup salt
*2 pkg. of unsweetened Kool-Aid
*3 T. oil
*2 Cups boiling water

Mix everything together. It will be lumpy and sticky for a while. As soon as it is cool enough, knead it with your hands til it looks like playdough! If it is still too sticky, add a little flour and salt and work it in.
* Don't double the batch because it makes the playdough not turn out as well.

Homemade Sushi

Garrett making Sushi

Garrett and my friends, Amber and Creighton, came over for dinner and games. Amber taught us how to make Sushi and Peruvian food. It was so much fun! The food tasted amazing.
This are the ingredients:
* Sticky Rice (Special Sushi Rice???)
* Chopped up carrots
* Pre-cooked shrimp
* Avocados
* Dry Seaweed

We took the seaweed and cut it into half. Then we put the rice, carrots, shrimp, and avocados on the seaweed. Next, wet the edge of the seaweed and roll it up. Wetting it helps the seaweed stay wrapped. Next, use a knife to cut the seaweed into sections. It was so delicious!
