Materials: Play Dough Recipe (below)
Roll out dough to about 1/2" thickness. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters or own design. Poke hoe through for stinging later. (Pencil works perfectly.) Place each on a paper towel and bake at 50% power in a microwave for about 3 minutes. Allow to cool and harden. Paint with markers. Thread through with string or yarn.

1 cup flour
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon oil
1/4 cup salt
Food coloring (optional)
Mix all ingredients. Stir over low heat until thickened. Remove from pan, let cool slightly, place into a plastic bag and knead until blended and smooth. Store in refrigerator.

Make your own stickers with this project.
1 packet (1/4 ounce) unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon cold water
3 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 teaspoon white corn syrup or sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon or vanilla extract.
In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin into cold water. Let soften for 5 minutes. Pour boiling water into softened gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add corn syrup or sugar and extract. Mix well. Brush the gum thinly on the back of the sticker. I find that it works better if you do a whole sheet and then cut after it's dried. The page will curl up but after it has dried you can press it under something heavy such as the phone book. When dry just moisten the sticker and apply. The gum will gel overnight. Place the adhesive in a pan of hot water to return it to liquid state. Store in refrigerator.
