Sick day for Mommy...

...so we made up a quick batch of play dough after I was reminded of it on a mama forum I am a part of. I usually make up a batch every year, and this year I had LOTS of help in the kitchen. 

Now I can lay down and they can play with a "new" toy for a little bit. Plus its pouring outside (very rare for us) so its pretty dark and gloomy. This way, its a win win for everyone!

Play Dough recipe:

2 cups warm water
2 cups flour
1 cup of salt
1 Tb of cream of tarter
2 TB of vegetable oil


Mix on medium heat until it forms a ball. 



Don't stop stirring until mixed.  If you need a stirring break, call on a friend to help.



Now, divide into as many colors are you want to have, and mix in colors when play dough has cooled. We did 6. I love teaching Jaden how mixing colors make new colors.  We also added extracts in that I had to make scented ones. My favorite is the orange.



Currently Jaden is making dinosaur bones...and hopefully my sweet husband gets home from church soon so I can really rest!
