Formally Gluten Free Kids R.O.C.K. 

Now "Gluten Free Kids"


Purchasing Play Dough   If you don't want to make it, you can purchase it through Discount School Supply .  I don't know which one is gluten free and so you will have to contact them and find out.

Art  and Science Recipes We tested recipes out of our kitchen and graded them too.All recipes in this section is not edible and not recommended for children that are still putting things in their mouths.  Adult supervision is strongly recommended.  

Play Dough   (Graded - Great)

3/4 cup rice flour

1/4 cup of corn starch

1/4 cup of salt

1 tsp of Alum or Cream of Tartar

Food coloring, gf paint (Discount School Supply) or Kool-Aid

1 Tblsp of cooking oil

1 cup hot water  

Heat all dry ingredients in a saucepan slowly over Med heat, while stirring until a ball forms.  Knead until smooth.  Store in an airtight container.    Explantation of the cooking chemistry:  Flour and water make a paste.  Wheat flour releases gluten from the proteins as it is stirred which makes it sticky.  Salt strengthens the gluten bonds.  Rice flour has protien that also forms bonds.  You can find Alum or Cream of Tartar at any grocery store.  

Classic Slime - or in our case Silly Puddy   (Grade - Great)  

1.  In paper cup mix to make a 50/50 glue       

1 Tblsp water       

1Tblsp Elmers glue        

Food Coloring


2.  In another cup make up a saturated borax solution        

1/4 cup water        

Borox Mule Team


3.  Stir in 1 tsp of Borax at a time.  Keep adding tsp until Borox won't disolve in the water. 

4.  Stir 2 tsp of the saturated borax solution into the 50/50 glue paper cup.  Keep stirring.

5.  When the slime has mostly formed, reach in and take it out of the cup

6.  Knead the slime to make it a consistent texture.

7.  If the slime is too sticky, you can add a little more borax solution.  It it is way too slippery you can add more 50/50 glue.

8.  Store your slime in a zip lock bag or other airtight container.

Silly Putty - (Grade - Great/Good)Not edible and not recommended for children that are still putting things in their mouths.  Adult supervision is strongly recommended.

1 cup water

6 Tbsp Mule Team Borax

1/2 cup (4 oz bottle) white school glue

optional:  food coloring  

1.)  Pour 1/2 cup water into a small bowl.  Add the Borax and stir until dissolved.  Set aside.

2.)  Pour the other 1/2 cup of water in a medium-sized glass or metal bolw.  Add the glue and stir until combined.  Optional:  add food coloring and stir to achieve the desired color.

3.)  Pour the Borax mixture into the glue mixture.  Knead with hands until most of the water is absorbed and the putty can form a ball in your hands.  Lift the putty from the bowl and discard the remaining water mixture.  Return the putty to the bowl and allow to sit, uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until fairly firm.  (I left out uncovered in bowl for a couple of hours to get rid of stickyness)

4.) Store any unused silly putty in an airtight container.  Stores for weeks.
