homeade play doh = supermama!

>> Saturday, March 12, 2011

we made play doh today :) ava had gymnastics this morning and as a reward for being a good listener, we decided to make some play doh.who knew that making play doh with the kids would transform me into a supermama in their eyes! "mama, you're the best ever" i belive is what ava said. so cute! she helped me mix all the ingredients together and then waited so patiently while i mixed everything over the heat of the stove. both of the kids had so much fun playing at the table with their new play doh. and it was so much fun to do with them!

i mean really, who wouldn't use their barbie comb and compact to work their play doh?!

those kitchen tools really coming in handy!
okay, so hollis did like the play doh, but really liked drumming the spoons on the table as loud as he possibly could.

cookin away on the stove!
anyway, had a great day with the kids. hoping to get outside a bit more tomorrow, maybe a park date with my littles. feels like spring has arrived!
wanted to come back and share the recipe i used...so easy and i had almost everything, had to run out and grab some cream of tartar.
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2tbsp cream of tartar
combine together and add to above:
1 cup water
2tsp. food coloring
1 tbsp vegetable oil
cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes and the doh will slowly thicken in the center of the pot. remove from heat and let cool a bit. place on lightly floured surface and knead together.
{thanks auntie toon toon for the recipe!}
