Homemade Play Dough

This afternoon I decided to do something creative and make play dough. I “Binged” a recipe and the fun began!


First, we mixed and cooked the ingredients.


Playdough in a pot(I used whole wheat flour: that is why it is tan)


Next, I divided it and C2 added the colors.

Then I kneaded the colors in.


Lime green, indigo and violet play dough


Judging from my hands, nitrile gloves were in order…oh well.


Hands stained green and purple.


Then it was time for play!

We enjoyed molding our malleable concoction into green kitties and trees, blue snakes, purple cars and pancakes (of course!).

Don’t eat it! It tastes yucky!
