I saw a recipe for making your own playdough on Pinterest and not too long ago we had a day with all of us home and nothing to do so we made it.
It's super easy. The kids were able to help. And we had a great time together!
1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 Tbls. vegetable oil
food coloring (4 or 5 drops is plenty)
Put all the ingredients in a pot and stir.
Put it on the stove over medium heat and stir constantly until it forms into a ball.
Once it's a big blog dump it on your counter and let it cool. Once it's cool knead it for a bit until smooth and well blended.
And then have fun playing!!
We made four batches to get the four colors. It does take a little bit of time but it really was a fun time and the kids thought it was super cool to make their own playdough.
So now you have something do to today with the kids if you are looking out your window and seeing that white stuff like I am. Hooray for snow! I love it!
