Play-doh Night

We spent Friday evening with two cutie pies making play doh. When I was little my mom's best friend Patti  used to make play doh for vacation bible school. When the week was over I got to take all the play doh home. I had a play-doh spaghetti factory and played for hours making delightful dishes.  When I got married this past summer she sent me the recipe. It was one of my favorite gifts that we got. I wanted to share with Meg and Holly the play-doh I loved so much.

Meg wanted purple.

Holly wanted green.

Holly was a big helper as she looked on.

It cooks quickly.

Meg was Will's helper.

Will helped her make the purple that she wanted.

We made Christmas shapes with our Play doh.

Here is the recipe if you are interested:
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons of cream of tarter (you can find this on the spice aisle)
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of cooking oil

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Add food coloring before cooking. Cook in nonstick pan on medium. Stir constantly because the mixture thickens quickly. Cook until it becomes a large ball. Empty onto wax paper or a cutting board and let cool.
