Fun With Home-made Play-dough08/11/2012 - Author: Natasha Phillips - No Comments
Growing up my mom would make us play-dough from scratch and I always thought she was crazy, until the other day. Elliott was just being a handful and I was running out of ideas to keep him busy. Suddenly the idea of play-dough popped into my head. I didn’t have any on hand but I did have flour, food coloring, salt, and water on hand. About 10 minutes later a fresh batch of play-dough was on Elliott’s tray and he was busy!! I was always jealous of other kids that had the the ‘real’ play-dough because of the way it felt, but I think that was just my childhood mind. The play-dough I made for Elliott was a little softer than the product from the store but really not much difference and it cost about 20 cents to make!! Elliott had so much fun with his new toy he played with it for over and hour that morning and a hour after his nap. Since then both he and Boyd have played with it every day. I now know why mom would make it as often as she did. You can find the play-dough recipe on my ‘recipe’ page or click on the play-dough recipe link and it will direct you right to the recipe. I hope that your family enjoys it as much as mine is and has.
