While we've been waiting for some sunnier days to go out and play, we've had a lot of fun inside. Today we made homemade play dough for the first time. This was the recipe we used (and we doubled it):
-2 cups plain flour
-1 cup salt
-2 cups water
-4 Tablespoons vegetable oil
-2 Tablespoons cream of tartar
-1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
Mix together dry ingredients in a sauce pan. Add wet ingredients and cook on low until the dough thickens to play dough consistency.
Oh, we also added one last ingredient as we were playing: sprinkles.
