February Fun Crafts – Homemade Playdough Creations

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spoon


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and cream of tartar.
  2. Add the vegetable oil and then slowly mix in the boiling water until a dough forms. If the mixture is too sticky, add a little more flour.
  3. Divide the dough into balls and add a few drops of food coloring to each. Knead until the color is evenly distributed.

February Fun Crafts – Custom Tote Bags


  • Plain canvas tote bags
  • Fabric paints or markers
  • Stencils or stamps (optional)
  • Brushes


  1. Spread your tote bag flat on a work surface. You may want to insert a piece of cardboard inside to prevent paint from bleeding through.
  2. Plan your design. You can free-hand draw with fabric markers or use stencils and stamps with fabric paint.
  3. Let your creativity flow and paint or draw your design on the tote bag.
  4. Allow the tote to dry completely before using.

This project fosters creativity and results in a practical item that can be used daily.
