• Spring Break Fun from Columbia Orthodontics

  • Spring has sprung and with it comes Spring Break for many school-aged children. Some families choose to take a vacation, while other residents of Vancouver, WA and Battle Ground areas spend the time together at home.

    There are many memorable things you can do with the kids while they are out of school.

    Here is a list of fun activities to do during this tim:.

    • Making salt dough play dough is a favorite among kids. To try this recipe, mix…
    • 1/4 cup salt1 cup boiling water
    • 2 packages unsweetened Kool-Aid mix (you can use one but two gives you a darker color sweeter smell.)
    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    1. 1/2 tablespoons oil
    2. Mix flour, salt and Kool-Aid well in a large bowl. Add boiling water and oil and then mix with a wooden spoon until it sticks together. When cooled and you can handle the dough mix the rest by hand blending all the color in so it is a nice even color
