Making Play Doh

With big sis in school it's been just little man and I getting some good ol' quality mommy and me time.  I've been digging through some of the old crafts I did with his sister at this age and stumbled upon our play doh recipe.  

This little guy already loves cooking with mama and he ABSOLUTELY loves play doh so this was a win win.  I tried a few things differently this time so here is the how to to make two and a half cups of dough.

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 cup of salt
1 1/2 cup of water
1 TB vegetable oil
1/2 TB cream of tarter
Food Coloring 
Almond or Peppermint extract [opt]

1. Throw all the ingredients into the pot.  I am making one colored batch so I added the food coloring now.  If you want to make multiple colored doh go to this tutorial. 

2. Slowly heat it until it starts to come together.  I probably could have added more color but it worked out. 

3.  Cook until the mush turns into a doh and is difficult to mix.  The longer you leave it on the heat the stiffer the doh gets.  

4.  Knead the doh a few times and form it into a ball.  It's ready to be used!  You can store it in a zip lock or use those old Play Doh containers. 

 

 He loves it as much as big sister did when she was a little one. 

Can someone tell me why time has to go so fast?! 

She may be a big girl now but when she comes home from school she still loves to sit at the table with us and play a little play doh. 
  

Big mess, endless fun.

Feel free to pin.

Until next time.  Toodles!
