    If you can get a copy of "Cooking Art" at your library, it is full of
    non-cook projects. Try the Gryphon House website for "free activities"
    from Cooking Art ... Not sure what they have on their site at this time,
    but here's the URL:

    Following is one of the activities Gryphon House has for free access
    (there area bout ten others) from Cooking Art:
         This one is a non-bake or cook dough
    for making logs for building a "log house"
    or other free sculpture ---

    1/2 cup crushed corn flakes
    1/2 cup quick oatmeal
    1/4 cup dry milk
    chocolate sprinkles

    measuring cups and spoons

    1. Place the peanut butter and honey in a mixing bowl and mix well with
    the wooden spoon.
    2. Add the corn flakes, oatmeal and milk to the peanut butter mixture and
    mix well.
    3. Pinch off a small amount of the dough mixture.
    4. Roll the small amount of dough into 2"-long X 1/2"-wide logs.
    5. Place the sprinkles on the baking sheet.
