Lately it seems like life is flying by so fast! I feel like I need to slow down and enjoy those little moments everyday with my children. So I decided to make our Thursdays a Play-doh Day! We clean off the kitchen counter, gather ingredients, make homemade play-doh, then spend the next hour or so getting creative with our hands. You'd be surprised at the age range of children (and adults) that can't resist a huge glob of the stuff.
This recipe is quick and easy, and so fun to do with kids or grandkids!
What you need:
2 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup salt (any kind will work)
2 envelopes Kool-aid (your choice of color)
3 T. oil
2 cups boiling water (if it isn't hot enough, the dough gets too sticky to work with)
|Mix dry ingredients together in mixing bowl.|
|Add boiling water and oil.|
|Mix together until dough pulls away from sides and forms a ball.|
|Put onto the counter and knead by hand until smooth. My little guy is checking to see if it's cooled off enough to play with!|
Is that easy or what? Now get out those ingredients and make some memories!
