This is a different type of recipe I want to share.Its not a recipe for eating, but rather one for playing!It has been getting colder here in Utah the last couple weeks. We have had a few rainy days and even a day where it snowed. Crazy. My daughter was getting a little anxious about not being able to go outside so I pulled up a recipe I found on Pinterest for homemade playdough. It is SO EASY to make! It is just a dump and stir kind of recipe. I whipped up 4 batches in seriously no time at all!
Typically, I am not a fan of playdough. The smell of it makes me sick to the stomach. This playdough however, did not smell and was so soft and squishy! By far THE BEST playdough I have ever played with. It made our rainy day turn into quite a fun afternoon at home! My daughter and I LOVED it!
She had more fun squishing it and pulling it apart. I on the other hand, felt like a kid again molding fun creations! I would make things and have her guess what it was. She got a kick out of it!I have A LOT of plastic baby food containers on hand, and How Does She? suggested the fabulous idea of putting the playdough in those containers and giving them as gifts or even STOCKING STUFFERS! Wouldn’t this be such a fun stocking stuffer for kids?
recipe from: How Does She?
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
Dump all the ingredients into a pot and stir them until blended together.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it forms a large ball.
As soon as it joins into one large ball, take it off the heat and dump it onto your counter or wax paper. Wait for it to cool, then knead it a few times until it becomes nice and soft.
