I pulled out this old book that my Mom had when we were little.
We made three batches. Julia picked the colours. Pink, Purple and Blue.
We had so much fun today. My house isn't clean and I'm not totally ready for YW's tonight. But boy, did I score points for Awesome Mom today. Now I just have to breakdown and give Julia the Lollipop she is asking (whining) for now.
Oh here's the recipe if you need a good one for stove top playdough.
Stove Top Playdough
Mix in a medium pot:
1 cup white flour
1/4 cup salt
2 tbsp. cream of tartar
Combine and add:
1 cup water
2 tsp. vegetable food colouring
1 tbsp. oil
Cook over medium heat and stir (about 3-5 minutes.) It will look like a "globby" mess and you'll be sure it's not turning out...but it will. When it forms a ball in the center of the pot turn out and knead on a lightly floured surface. Store in an airtight container or plastic bag (I love ziploc bags). Edible but not tasty.
