Sometimes I forget to take time aside with Chloe and have fun exploring the things that she is ready & eager to do! Her sisters take up a lot of my time and energy being 10 months younger & SUPER busy. I try hard to make sure we spend time doing an activity Chloe picks!
Lately every time we go shopping at the BX on the AFB here we walk past this "play-doh" display. Chloe instantly goes into "I want it!" mode. [she struggles with that lately, we're working on it ;)] Huge scene because I won't typically spend money on those types of things! So I found this awesome super easy recipe for homemade play dough!
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
2 tablespoons of oil
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
1 cup of water
& food coloring! (or one website suggested using beet, spinach & carrot juice if you prefer to go all natural)
I used the neon food coloring & the colors came out beautiful!
Mix the flour, salt, cream of tarter & oil then add the water and cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly with a strong spoon ;) I say strong because I broke one of my plastic mixing spoons on my first batch! baha.
|We made 3 batches & split it up into 4 balls :)|
