Better Than Playing In Traffic

Posted on February 6th, 2011 in Featured, Life List

Last week I decided to randomly cross something off of my Life List, and made some homemade playdough with my kids.  They seemed to particularly enjoy picking out food coloring with which to dye to dough, and then making it into all sorts of fun shapes.  We never had play doh from the store when I was a kid.  My grandmother would make it for us at her house, and I think it’s preferable to be able to give my kids dough that I’ve made myself than the concoction of chemicals in the yellow plastic can.  Plus homemade playdough can be baked in the oven if your children want to make ornaments, models, or anything else that they can keep or give as gifts.

394. Make my grandma’s homemade playdough with my kids

That makes four things so far in 2011. Not too bad :)

    Glowing Jell-O Materials

    * package of Jell-O or other gelatin
    * tonic water
    * black light

    Make the Jell-O

    1. Basically you just follow the directions on the package, except use tonic water instead of water.
    2. For a small package, the usual directions would be to heat 1 cup of tonic water to boiling.
    3. Mix the boiling tonic water and Jell-O until the powder is completely dissolved.
    4. Stir in another cup of tonic water.
    5. Pour the liquid into a pan or bowl.
    6. Refrigerate the Jell-O until is has set.
    7. You can use cookie cutters to make shapes out of the gelatin, if desired.
    8. Shine a black light on the Jell-O to make it glow.

    No matter what flavor/color of Jell-O you use, it will glow bright blue under the black light. This is the fluorescence of the quinine in the tonic water. Quinine also gives tonic water a distinctive bitter flavor which you will also taste in the gelatin. If you don’t like the taste you can lessen it by using half tonic water and half tap water in the recipe. Either sugar-free or regular tonic water works fine for this recipe.
