Flour Babies by Anne Fine.
Let it be flour babies. Let chaos reign.
In this one act play, when the annual school science fair comes round, Mr Cartwright's underachieving class don't get to work on the Soap Factory, the Maggot Farm or the Exploding Custard Tins. To their intense disgust they get the Flour Babies - sweet little six-pound bags of flour that must be cared for at all times.
