Big thank you to Cedar Cross Preschool mom Nikki for reminding us that preschool isn't the only place to have AWESOME play dough! Here is her adorable daughter Sicily experimenting with their own version at home.
I am thinking of a red play dough for Valentines Day tomorrow would be tons of fun!
Check the bottom of this post for the very easy recipe.
Next weekend check out Paddington Bear’s First Concert at the Edmonds Center for the Arts. It’s a 50 minute concert performed by the Cascade Symphony Orchestra and narrated by Dave Dolacky – Saturday the 22nd @ 3pm. Checkout the website for more information.
Have a fun and safe weekend!
Cedar Cross Play Dough Recipe!
Single Recipe (for preschool we triple the recipe)
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Salt
¼ Cup Vegetable Oil
3 Teaspoons Cream of Tartar
2 Cups Boiling Water
Measure and combine first four ingredients in a large bowl: stir to mix dry ingredients well.
Quickly pour boiling water into dry ingredients and stir. Turn out onto table surface and knead as soon as can be handled. Store in an air-tight container for up to three months.
Change the color, add scent, and some sparkle
Add a few drops of food coloring to the water before pouring into dry ingredients.
Add a small amount of liquid water color paint to the water.
Add a small amount of powdered tempura to the dry ingredients before adding water.
To make sparkly, add glitter to the dry ingredients before adding water.
To change scent, add a couple packets of Kool-aid non-sugared drink mix with the dry ingredients before adding water.
Add spice extracts or potpourri oils from the craft store.
Add dry spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and pumpkin pie spice to the dry ingredients.
Replace ½ cup flour with dry cocoa powder.
