got 15 minutes and a couple of bored toddlers? (aka homemade play dough)
Homemade Play Dough
Mix 1 cup salt
with 2 tsp vegetable, cannola, or safflower oil
and 1 cup water
In another bowl, mix 3 cups flour
with 2 tablespoons corn starch.
Add to the salt water mixture. It should feel like too-dry dough, but still come together.
Separate into however many colors you want. Mix food coloring with a little bit of water (I use powdered food coloring). Don’t let the 1-year-old hold the blue food coloring.
and add to the dough, kneading until thoroughly mixed. (This extra water should change the consistency so that it no longer feels “too dry” but has a cool, rubbery texture.)
Store in plastic bags.
Use cookie cutters, small rolling pins, or lots of imagination!
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
