One of my "resolutions" was to make more projects with the kids. I am going to try to aim for one special project a week. So far, for week one, we are actually at two projects. Yeah! Here are pics from our first project that we did--homemade play-doh.
We added sparkles to our play-doh, because, come on, sparkles make everything so much more fun!
And there is Piper with the finished product! This play-doh is definitely worth the time and effort to make it. I couldn't find the link to where I saw this recipe, but here is what I wrote down:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup salt
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- food coloring--or use a kool-aid packet(which is what we did) and you will have delicious smelling play-doh!
- sparkles! definitely aren't needed, but it is just so much more fun! :)
Mix everything together in a sauce pan and stir together with a wooden spoon over medium heat. Keep stirring the entire time! After a few minutes, the doh will start to lump together. Keep stirring! Once all the doh becomes one gigantic lump, it is done. Remove from heat, dump on countertop and knead until there are no more little clumps. Once cooled, put in containers. Your dough will last about 6 months.
You will never buy another jar of Play-Doh again! Or maybe you will if you find a great deal on it. :)
