These are the ingredients:
1 cup of flour
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of salt
2 teaspoon of cream of tartar
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
Food coloring (10 drops or more)
The play dough was so much fun to make. We used blue food coloring. Lia and I took turns in mixing the dough. After we mixed it, the dough mixture does not look like play dough at all because it is not yet cooked. Mommy cooked the dough for us. She lets us see what was happening in the pot.
After the play dough was cooked Mommy kneads it. It was very hot. When it was warm and safe to touch, Mommy let us try kneading the dough. Then we put some glitter in the play dough. Then the fun part, playing with the finished product!
We learned how to make play dough from Mother Goose Club: Show Me How. We watched many of their craft videos. They were so much fun to make, so we made two of their crafts. One is homemade play dough the other one is egg carton flowers which will be our next blog post.
Thank you Ashrie for the article. Here's Daddy's verdict on your Homemade Play Dough:
I personally think that MyGirls did very well. I have checked the play dough's consistency and it felt smooth and very pliable, the glitters did not stick to the hands or the work surface, and it smells even better than store-bought PLAYDOH! Plus, you can have more dough to play with at a given time.
The only factor that PLAYDOH has over this homemade version is for sure, having longer shelf life.
Until next time! Happy Midweek!
