Trying to find things to
keep us busy until Summer Camp starts.

So, I promised the boys that every morning we would do
something crafty together.

Today was play dough.
They got to pick the color.

I like homemade play dough better than the store stuff.
It seems less messy, if that makes sense?
It is softer and less crumbly.

Anyhow here is the result:

I used this for color:

The boys seemed to have fun playing
with it.

Coop loved it.
I took out some tiny cookie cutters and
they had a blast.

Those tiny hands are growing way too fast!!

Here is the recipe I used:

Makes approx. 2.5 cups

1.5 cups of flour
3/4 cups salt
1/5 cups of water
1 TB vegetable oil
1 tsp cream of tarter
food coloring - I used the kind shown above

Mix all ingredients in saucepan. Once its all mixed add the food coloring.

Make sure you keep your stove on med. to low heat, it starts to clump
pretty quickly. Once you actually have something that looks like cookie dough take it off the heat. Lay out a cookie sheet and line it with wax paper. Scoop out dough onto wax paper and start to knead dough as soon as it is cool enough to handle {it should still be warm though}. Knead it to a nice smooth texture.
Make sure to keep it in an airtight container or zip lock bag.
