Box in Dracula's House
Place this hand in your box and you will have your guests scared stiff!What You Need:
- 3 cups cold water
- 3/4 cup cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Green food coloring
- Disposable plastic glove
1. Stir the first four ingredients together. An adult should supervise if a child is using the stove. Place ingredients in a saucepan. Place over heat, and bring to a boil, stirring until thickened. Let it cool a few minutes until it can be handled.
2. Fill the plastic glove. Have one person hold the glove open while another spoons the warm mixture into it, pushing the mixture down into each finger. Fasten the opening securely with a twist tie or duct tape. It can be used warm or cold, and keeps quite well.
3. For a lumpy hand: Mix just 1/2 cup of the cornstarch into the cold water at the beginning, and add the last 1/4 cup after the mixture has started to thicken over the heat.
