Play Dough

A couple of weeks ago Ryan's Great-Aunt Sharon passed on a play dough recipe to us. While Ryan and I were stuck in the house during the painting I decided to give it a try. Ryan and I headed outside to play with the neon-colored play dough. Ryan played with it a little bit but was more interested in watching the kids ride their bikes up and down the street, telling everyone hi and running around.

The play dough keeps really well though in little ziploc baggies. It is SO easy to make and almost even smells like the real stuff. I am sure that we will make it again in the future. Here is Sharon's play dough recipe.

Sharon's Play Dough

1 cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup salt
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup water

Combine all dry ingredients in a saucepan. Add in water and oil. Stir over low heat until it comes together like a dough. Remove from heat. Add food coloring if desired.
