Squishing baked cotton balls

Mix equal parts flour and water, add food colouring, soak cotton balls, and bake them for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 150 F, and then....wait for it....SMASH THEM WITH A HAMMER!!!!!  Ours were kinda squishy so next time, we cook them longer.....

Right.  Apparently, I was supposed to bake them at 300 F, not 150.  And now I know!  Better luck next time!!

So much messy fun!  Soaking the cotton balls!

Just out of the oven.

Ashlyn hammers the cotton balls and discovers they don't shatter, but they do squish.

Aubrey tries the hammer first, then.....

in the words of the Avengers' Hulk "Aubrey SMASH!"

Riley tries a new technique

"Hey, wait a sec!  This is still squishy on the bottom!"

Brenna tries her hand and the 'ol 'line up and smash'.  "This is so cool!"
