Play Cookies (non-edible cookies made for play only): Collect flour, salt, water, small jewelry beads (read, blue, green), a rolling pin, cookie cutters, and a cookie sheet. Be sure you have access to an oven. Mix 2 cups, flour and ½-cup, salt. Add water gradually; knead as you go. If the dough is too stiff, add water; if it is too sticky, add flour. Roll it out with the rolling pin. Use the cookie cutters to cut out cookie shapes and decorate them with the beads. Push the beads down into the dough (they may melt in the baking process, but that is okay). Place the cookies on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes (or until the cookies are hard). Cool thoroughly. Use one of the cookies to play "Who Took the Cookie from the Cookie Jar."
