All-Natural Homemade Glue is a simple recipe to do along with your children that can keep for weeks in the fridge. My girls enjoy using it for all of their weekly art projects and I don’t get worried if my baby takes a taste or two! You simply mix 1 cup of flour, 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 cups of water (you might need a bit more or less) and 1 tsp of vinegar. Then you warm it up on the stove till it thickens a little bit, let is cool and it is ready to use.
We make our “art masterpieces” with odds and ends from the pantry, broken pasta, dried beans or snack items that have gone stale. That way I don’t have to spend any money at the craft store and still have fun art projects to do with my children. I find it important to teach my children to reuse and reduce their carbon footprint in every way, even the little ones like art & craft projects.
