Yes! The first day of spring is finally here.
We made some homemade play dough the other day and my five-year-old made this cheery picture. Here’s the recipe we used:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1/4 cup salt
- food coloring
Mix together. Cook over medium heat until it reaches the consistency of dough. I tried to make this before and it didn’t turn out because I didn’t realize that you really do have to cook it. Let it cool and knead it. You may need to knead in a bit more oil. You could use natural food coloring. I think it would also be nice to add a few drops of essential oil.
