    Wrapping Paper Idea
    white wrapping tissue paper
    bingo bottles filled with Liquid Watercolor paint

    1. Fold a piece of tissue until it was about 6 inches square.
    2. Press bingo bottles with liquid water color (about half paint and half
    on the paper so that the paint soaks all the way through all the layers
    of tissue. It doesn't matter if kids use a little or a lot.
    3. Leave them folded until the paint is dry.
    4. When dry, use as wrapping paper for gifts, or fold a stack and tie
    with a ribbon. Give the stack of paper as a gift.

    PS The more water you mix in the more pastel the designs will be.

    Pickle Clay
    In a big bowl mix together:
        15 Tablespoons baking powder
         2 1/2 cups of pickle juice or vinegar, or use both
         5 cups of flour
         5 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
         add any color paint or food coloring that is icky, like green
