#funfriday / we made homemade play dough AND IT ROCKS!!!

We’ve been lazy all day. We’ve stayed in our pajamas, worked on purging our closets, ate leftover pizza and took late afternoon naps.

Tonight, we tried something new for #funfriday! We made homemade play dough!!

Guys – this stuff was SOOO much better than the store bought play dough!

It was less messy, softer and easier to mold into shapes.

This idea came from my friend, Becca. This was one of the surprise fun Friday boxes she gave us before we had Brock.

What you need:

Placemats to keep your counters clean (from the dollar store!!)
Food Color – I added 7-8 drops to my batch
Dry Ingredients (1 cup flour, 1/4 cup salt and 2 tsp salt)
1 cup of water
1 tbsp of vegetable oil (we used canola oil because that is what we had and it worked too)

First, add the dry ingredients, water, oil and food color to a medium sized pot. Stir it all together.

Put over medium heat and stir until it forms a ball. It won’t take long.

Scrape it out of the pot and lay on wax paper to cool.

    1. When I tell you that we have play dough that has been stored on the top shelf of the play room cabinet for 3 plus years – I am not lying!!! I will let the girls play with this from now on. It is not messy at all and is wonderful to shape!! I promise!!!! 🙂
