Over the weekend my girls and I cooked up a batch of homemade play dough. It was so easy to make and they loved being involved. If you would like to entertain your toddlers with a safe homemade product, take 10 minutes out your schedule and try this recipe. 🙂
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup colored water*
(Shred a beet and place in 1 cup of cold water. Drain and use the water for the recipe. Save the shredded beet for a salad.)
- In a saucepan, mix all the ingredients.
- Cook over low to medium heat, stirring frequently, for 5 – 7 minutes.
- Let cool and store in an airtight container.
* For yellow play dough, add 2 -3 teaspoons of turmeric to the water.
