Home-made Play Dough!

Our oldest son, Blaize, LOVES doing experiments, learning how to make things on his own just as he likes breaking things up and re-building them himself. He's always researching videos on my iPad, looking for new things he can learn to make from scratch.

Earlier this week, he decided to look up how to make play dough with things we had in our pantry. Sure enough, he found a video on YouTube and did it.

Ingredients:
~ Flour 
~ Veg. Oil
~ Salt
~ Food coloring 
~ water

You will need:
~ counter/table space 
~ mixing bowls
~ spoon 
~ measuring cup

What to do: 
(This makes up to 4 batches. Portions may vary depending on amount of batches.)
1) Mix 4 cups of flour with 1.5 cups of salt in a mixing bowl
2) In a separate bowl, stir 2 table spoons of vegetable oil into 1/4 cup of water
3) Pour food coloring into the water & oil mix and stir
4) Stir 1 cup of the salt and flour mixture into the bowl with the food coloring until it molds
5) Massage batch on the table/counter with more flour until ready.




Enjoy!!!
