7. Put into the microwave for 1 minute and then remove and stir well.
It should becoming away from the edges and be almost like play dough. Then when it is a bit cooler, knead it until it is soft and flexible. Enjoy!
Keep in an airtight bag and it won't dry out. The cream of tartar is important!

This week we have been learning about how food is digested.
We used a plastic bag to represent the stomach and orange juice to represent the gastric juices in the stomach. We looked to see what would happen to the bread we put in!
Then we mixed some porridge and placed that in the plastic bag (stomach).
We then passed it through a pair of tights to see what happens when food travels through the small and large intestine.
We learnt that
- gastric juices break down food in the stomach
- vitamins and minerals are passed into the blood stream through the walls of the intestine
- the food loses water as it is absorbed back into the body
