Whos tired of buying playdough and afraid that if your little one may ingest it??
Yes, most playdough you can buy in the store says they are NON toxic but seriously with all these chemical and GMOs being put into food, who knows what could be in those!
So being a mom of 3 girls who like to be doing something every minute of every day, I had to figure out a cheaper way to keep them busy and why not go with something they can help me make and then have to play with themselves!.....PLAYDOUGH!
So here is what you need...
2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar (optional for improved elasticity)
Mix all of the ingredients together, and stir over a low heat. The dough will begin to thicken and it will start to resembles mashed potatoes.
When the dough comes away from the sides and clumps into the middle, remove the pan from heat and allow the dough to cool enough to handle.
Keep stirring and cooking the dough until it is dry and feels like playdough. (If dough is sticky dough just keep cooking a bit longer and it will work!)
Take the dough out onto a clean counter and knead vigorously until it becomes silky-smooth. Divide the dough into balls for coloring.
Make an impression in the center of the ball, and drop some food coloring in and knead it to color the dough.
(be careful around dogs with this recipe, the amount of salt in this dough if ingested by a dog can harm them)
Let me know what you guys think!
