With the spring rains around the corner, (or in our case, already here!) It’s a great idea to have something fun and easily planned.
Well, I didn’t have anything planned, but my daughter’s school sent home an easy recipe for play dough that eventually they will use for a school project next week. So, being the brilliant Mom I am, I decided to make this day a rainy day playdough day! And the girls now think I am a genius! (Thanks Morro Bay Montessori Learning Center!)
So here is the easy recipe they sent home:
2 cups of flour
2 cups water with food color of choice (we made green and yellow)
1 cup salt
4 tsp. cream of tartar (make a difference)
4 Tbsp. Oil
- mix liquid ingredients with color first
- add all other ingredients
- cook until thickened over low heat
- explore dough freely with your child
*Keeps longer if stored in sealed container or baggie in fridge.
Easy Peasy! And it was a great lesson is measuring and safety in the kitchen too! I was there the whole time of course and taking pictures of them just made it that much more fun! Enjoy the pics and have fun creating fun on your rainy days!!!
