The Pure Baby Loves His Homemade Play Dough!
The Pure Baby (PB) has become a big fan of homemade play dough! Play dough has become a fun part of PB's mornings, while his brothers do their homeschool work :)
Our Recipe for Homemade Cooked Play Dough:
1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
Vegetable-based food coloring, such as India Tree Natural Decorating Colors
1- Mix dry ingredients in a sauce pan.
2- Add wet ingredients (except food coloring) and combine.
3- Cook over medium heat.
4- Stir continuously, until a ball forms.
5- Cool at room temperature.
6- Knead until smooth.
7- After deciding on food colorings, divide play dough into the necessary number of parts. Put play dough into bowls. Add chosen food colorings to play dough. Knead until food coloring is evenly spread.
8- Have fun!
For PB, we divided the play dough into 3 parts, making 3 different fun colors of play dough: yellow, red, and purple!
With his brothers' old Play Doh tools, PB is having lots of fun with his safe and healthy play dough!
