Homemade Fun

Olivia had off from school today because of possible inclement weather. We made a no cook play-DOUGH today. I've made the recipe you "cook" many times with my classes, but was out of cream of tartar.

So we made actual dough minus the yeast. It was a pretty good recipe, but I like the original recipe better. I knew Olivia would enjoy it, but was surprised by how much Nathan enjoyed it. He did try to sneak a little in his mouth, but quickly found out it wasn't any good.

They played with the play-dough for over an hour! Luke played, nursed, and tried to take a nap. Some little people were giggling too loud in the kitchen. :)

Try making some play-dough today!
3 cups flour
1/3 cup salt
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/3 cup water
food coloring.

Mix first four ingredients. Knead the dough with your hands. Add food coloring.
