I made playdough for Princess and Handsome the other day and they thought it was fabulous!! Princess especially was amazed that I could turn flour and salt into glorious playdough! And, as a bonus, when I added the food coloring, we talked about what color the playdough would become--she correctly predicted that yellow and red mixed together would make orange. My little smarty-pants.
Next time I'll have the children help me with this--this time around they were busy eating breakfast while I was making this for them. It was pretty quick and easy to do and not too messy either.
Here is the recipe I used for our homemade playdough:
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup of salt
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 cups of water
- food coloring
I split my dough in half and colored half blue and half orange. I used food coloring to color my dough but I know some people use kool-aid packets. I've never bought kool-aid in my life so I didn't have any of that on hand.
