Well, we start by hunting and gathering around the kitchen. JDaniel loves to help gather together all the ingredients.
1 1/2 cups of salt
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
We mix all of the ingredients except the cocoa together adding the flour a little at a time. We tend to use a big bowl when mixing. It helps to keep the ingredients in a bowl. We also tend to mix and knead the ingredients together with our hands. It is very relaxing and feels great on our hands.
Later in the day we had one of the little boys next door come over to play. I took out our animal cookie cutters. We ended up with all kinds of chocolate shadow creatures. I believe there were even a couple of groundhogs.
