FPIES Safe Kids Craft Recipes!

Ok, so keep in mind, everybody's triggers are different, so if your LO could react to one or more of the recipe ingredients, you may need to make some alterations. I will try to post as many different alternatives as I can so that these recipes will be accessible to most, if not everyone. Everyone needs some crafty fun and if you have a LO who likes to "sample" the craft supplies like my B, it needs to be safe from potential food triggers.

Magic Moulding Dough
(This recipe is modified from the original. Here is the link to the original: http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.org/KFA-Celebrates-Valentines-Day.pdf#search="play dough")

1 1/2 c corn flour
1/2 c salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup of water
1 tbsp canola or other safe oil
1/4 tsp favorite safe extract, such as vanilla or peppermint(if you omit this, add a little extra oil.)
Food coloring if desired. With the corn flour, there will be an automatically slight yellow cast to the dough so compensate accordingly with extra food coloring where needed. Red, for instance, took a lot of red and purple required a lot of red drops as well.

Mix all ingredients well by hand or with electric mixer. Should feel soft and pliable, not sticky, not crumbly. If crumbly, add oil in 1/2tsp amounts until desired texture is met. Add flour in 1 Tbsp increments if dough is too liquidy or sticky.

Store in air tight containers or in ziploc bags. I used old plastic baby food containers (from our days before knowledge of B's potential cross contamination issues) and they worked very well!

Just a few colors but they came out nicely! The hardest ones to make were the purple and blue-- I think this was because of the yellowish cast that the dough had due to the corn flour.

Making and squishing play dough shapes! It was a big hit!!!!
