My kids love play dough and there's nothing like the homemade kind.
It's guaranteed to entertain them for hours!
Here's a fun recipe that was passed along to me when I was first married. A nice lady felt sorry for me and my (eh-hem) lack of cooking skills. She kindly wrote down all of her favorite recipes for me, and the recipe for fruity play dough was included. I can't tell you how many times this recipe has come in handy!
Adding unsweetened Kool-Aid is fun because it not only colors the dough,
but it also adds a little fruity scent that the kids love.
Fruity Play Dough
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 pkg unsweetened soft drink mix
1 cup boiling water
2 Tbls. vegetable oil
Combine flour, salt, cream of tartar, and soft drink mix in medium bowl.
Add boiling water and oil. Stir until a soft dough forms. Knead until smooth.
Store in airtight container.
Ahhhh, I love those chubby fingers! Hours and hours of endless play dough fun! :)
