so for some reason, i have a bunch of unopened, but expired bags of flour in the closet and i just know there has to be something i can do with it. I have two toddlers, so any kid-friendly project ideas anybody?? (other than play-doh cause my experiences making that arent good.) Thanks so much!!! :smile:

paper mache ?

rip old news paper, make paste of flour and water, dip news paper - make stuff
let it dry, paint.

apply over balloon , cut in 1/2, make 2 masks


bend coat hangers / light wire to make a frame shaped like person, animal, etc.
wrap with papaer mache - etc.

You can make little stress balls out of it with balloons. Fill the balloons with flour, tie in knot, and voila. Stress ball. :lol:
