We made some play dough together at the beginning of the week and ED has been playing with it every single morning! Play dough is really easy to make and has a wonderful consistency.
Here’s how we made made ours:
- 1 cup flour
- 1/3 cup salt
- 1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar (in the spice aisle of your grocery store)
- 1 Tablespoon oil
- 1 cup of near boiling water
- almost 1 teaspoon of glycerine (this isn’t necessary, but it sure makes the play dough feel smooth. I had to hunt around for ours. I got it at a local pharmacy.)
- 1-2 teaspoon silver glitter
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan. Mix. Then heat until the dough thickens.
The kids all played with this for quite a while. They all spent a lot of time making snowflakes, but I got involved in other things and never came back to take a photo!
Yes, I do still need to change out our Christmas table cloth (haha!!), but honest all the other stuff is put away!!
