Coffee Craft

If you are like me you cannot live without your morning cup of coffee. Some days it is more like 2 or 3 cups…

Any way, I came across a fun recipe that uses your used coffee grounds. I plan to try it out with the kids this week.

Treasure Stone Craft

Make a fun stone using this recipe. It even has a hidden treasure inside.

Materials Needed:
1 cup flour
1 cup used coffee grinds
1/2 cup salt
1/4 cup sand
1 cup water

Instructions: Mix all dry ingredients together. Slowly add the water to make a stiff dough; you might end up using only half the water - add it slowly or your dough will be too runny!! Knead on a floured surface until fairly smooth. Break the dough into desired rock sizes. Hide toys and surprises in the center of a ball of dough. Set in a safe place until totally dry. At least 3 - 4 days.

Once it is dry, the dough will look and feel like a rock. You can carefully break open the home-made rocks with a hammer to reveal the hidden treasures inside.
