Play Doh Cake Makin Station.
We have several Play Doh sets like the one above and the latest set to join the ranks is the Candy Cyclone, seen below. The children love the Cyclone because it makes Play Doh gumballs.
Well seeing as how the children had a Play Doh coupon and how I was not going to drive 45 minutes to the nearest Target, we made our own. Our recipe comes from this book:
Busy Book is a long forgotten gem in our household but when it comes to DIY playdough it is what I reach for every time. Here is our favorite recipe from the book and it really does take 5 minutes. The littles love to play with the final product and the older children love to work the stove and mix the ingredients.
Combine in a saucepan and heat until warm:
1 cup water
1 TBS. vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
1 TBS. cream of tartar
Remove from the heat and stir in:
1 cup flour
Dump out the dough and knead until smooth.
See it is a very simple and quick recipe.
Now have fun with one of the sets I mentioned above or strike out on your own and make something like this:
Isn't that a cute face to start the week with?
