Hello there! My weekend was *crazy* (more to come on that later!) and I didn’t get nearly enough time to work on blogging as I previously thought I would.
Ah well…life is good, and I would rather be present with the people I love than sitting in front of a computer screen any old day. Ya feel me?! 😉
So for that reason, today will be short & sweet…and hopefully will inspire you to cook up some fun with the little ones in your life. This homemade play-doh recipe has been tested by my kindergarten class and my almost-4-year-old niece, and it gets two thumbs up from everyone!
A-Bug helping to stir the ingrediants…at this point she was hoping we were making cake!
She wanted purple, so we went for it!
Add a little heat and kneading…and it went from that to this!
She was as happy as a clam…I couldn’t even get her to stop and cheese for a good picture. 🙂 Cookie cutters added to the fun!
Uncle Chris got in on the fun!
And, in the meantime, we took turns holding this cute little guy. *Love* him!
1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
1 TBSP vegetable oil
2 tsp cream of tarter
food coloring – whatever color you want!
*Mix it all together in a non-stick pan, then turn on the heat and stir until “it starts acting like playdoh.”
*Once it doesn’t look so sticky anymore (sorry, but this is about as technical as I can get!) take it off the heat and knead it for a few minutes.
*Ta-da! It’s ready to play with! Seal in an airtight container to keep it around for a while.
KEEP CALM & PLAY WITH PLAY-DOH!
