Its only Thursday and I’ve already re-decorated my kitchen, started two new crafting projects and I’m getting ready to work on one of the latter. I’ve had this insane burst of energy this week and I wanted to utilize it in a productive manner and although I’ve accomplished a lot these past few days, I always feel the need to incorporate my little ones in something too.
I woke up wanting to create something new and wanted to feed their creative nature as well. My first thought was painting but since I’ve run out of spare cloth I needed something else, something more hands on than their last.
Home made play-dough.
The recipe for this is super easy.
Food colouring (or sugar free Kool-Aid powder)
1 cup of flour,
1 cup water,
2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
Combine water, salt, food colouring and oil into saucepan.
Heat until warm.
Add flour and knead until smooth.
Use a Ziploc bag to store in cool, dry area.
* Adding cream of tartar to the flour allows the dough to be stored for an extra 6 months.
