It’s no secret flour is a major staple in any kitchen. And yet for the first many years of our marriage I rarely had it on hand.

As if you needed any further proof that you ought to keep plenty of flour on hand (or in case you do) here’s a list of some things you can do with plain ole’ all purpose flour.

Thirteen Things You Can Make With Flour


  1. Flour tortillas
  2. Pie crust
  3. Graham Crackers
  4. Crackers
  5. Pancake and waffle mix
  6. Soft breadsticks
  7. Pita bread
  8. Sopapillas

  1. Sidewalk Chalk
  2. Flubber or Slime
  3. Watercolor Paint
  4. Bubble Solution
  5. Corn Starch Goo (solidifies when you squeeze it, liquifies when you relax!)

Enjoy your making and doing!!
