My friend April over at The Joyful Tribe blog posted this - Homemade Play Doh! recipe a few weeks ago and we finally had a free minute this weekend to whip it up; it did not disappoint!
I'd been wanting to make it for forever but I knew Elliott's first and only instinct would probably be to shove the entire thing in his mouth.. So I pushed it to a later date!
When we made it this weekend he still took a few bites but there was much fun and smooshing before he realized he could eat it. hehe
Since this is April's masterpiece and she's my blog buddy I'm going to make you click her link for the measurements but I will post photos of our ingredients and tweaks below :)
First step get naked and hyped up!
Boil water and oil.
Combine in bowl dry ingredients.
Bring oil/water to rapid boil and pour into dry bowl.
Mix up wet and dry while your Sous-chef is "helping" by removing bowls from the cupboard...
This is where my recipe was tweaked
April used kool aid packets but I didn't have any on hand,
I did have neon food colour and it worked perfect!
Make sure you put 3-4 drops in the center of the doh ball and wrap it or you will have perma dyed hands! Knead the dough with your palm until smooth.
Cute little easter eggs! ^
We put down a dollar store table cloth so I wouldn't be picking Doh out of the floor cracks from here until eternity... Serious life saver!
Then play time!!
