I remember watching PBS as a child, and being so excited when the husband and wife “Kid Concoctions” team were on sharing their recipes during PBS pledge weeks. They made fun DIY crafts and projects like these fun treasure stones that I made for my son’s jungle safari birthday party. I am so excited to share these with you!
I think their recipe is just brilliant! I’ll show you how to make the regular version first, and then show you my unique twist on it that I made for the party. I’ve gotten some emails asking for the recipe, so here you go!
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup used coffee grounds (I get them for free from Starbucks since I’m not a coffee drinker)
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1/4 cup sand (I’ve used sand from the beach, the playground, and cornmeal when I didn’t have any sand- they all worked great!)
- 3/4 cup water
- Small toys and prizes- marbles, plastic animals, fake or real coins, and play jewelry are great choices!
