The Sottile family was in the kitchen for a measurement math class and what was on the menu? Homemade play dough! Unfortunately the weather is warming up a bit quickly and I didn't feel like working on the stove AND we were out of cream of tartar. I was striking out but knew I could work with that!What you need:
4 cups of flour
1.5 cups of salt
3 TBSP of oil
1 cup of water
1.5 cups of boiling water
Step 1: Mix everything together except for the boiling water.Step 2. Begin to knead while in the bowl.
Step 3. As you mix all the ingredients, slowly add the boiling water as needed (you may not use it all).
Step 4. (Adults only) As the water begins to cool, continue to knead dough.
Step 5. Flour surface lightly where you will be working
Step 6. Roll out dough and work it until it is pliable and dough-ready
Step 7. Divide dough based on colors you will be using.
Step 8. Place food coloring in 2-3 drops in center of dough.Step 9. Knead dough until color begins to be absorbed into the dough.
*Color will get stronger the more it gets played with, the kids think this is MAGIC dough!*
Step 10. PLAY!!!!!!!*For longer lasting dough, store in glass or air-tight jars. We use ball jars and they have lasted 2 years so far!! This is a fresh batch we made today in order to give to friends :)
Enjoy every minute my friends!!
