Mix them together (shake them in a big ziploc bag or stir them together in a big bowl). Then simply store the mixture in an airtight container until you get the urge for dessert. Then just put three tablespoons of the dry mixture in a big coffee mug and stir in two tablespoons of water. Microwave it for one minute and you will have a single...

Super easy DIY craft for Christmas… Mason Jar Snowglobes… All you need is a clear jar with lid, super glue, glitter and water… Oh, and something cute to put inside ;)
Good idea for teaching glue in beginning of year. Dot dot not a lot - Have kids put a dot on each black dot. Then scrunch up a pre cut tissue square and put on glue dots. Scrunching helps with fine motor muscles too!
Introducing.... THE GLUE SPONGE! You just cut a sponge to fit in a container, pour glue it, and the kids can just press their little cut-up pieces of paper on it. No more globby glue puddles! What a great idea for kids and adults!
