Playdough Fun

A few weeks ago the girls and I tried to make a play dough recipe I found on-line.  Disaster is the only appropriate word.  So, I put a call out on twitter and facebook for a recipe that would work.  A college friend responded.  The girls and I finally tried it today.  And it turned out FANTABULOUS.  My friend gave me the go ahead to share, so here goes!

This is a no cook recipe so great for doing with the kids.  They can help with all of it!

Vinegar Dough

3 cups flour
1 cup water, a bit more if necessary
1 cup salt
1/4 cup oil
2 Tablespoons vinegar
food coloring

Mix all ingredients together, if it is a bit dry, which mine was, add water very gradually after that original cup.  It only took a bit to get it just right.

Not a bad picture Caitlyn!

The girls played happily and quietly for quite a while.  It was a huge success!  And somehow, we managed to make ours the same color as one of the play-doh colors they used to have (found residue in some of the toys).

I have it in a freezer storage bag. I’m curious to see how long it lasts!  If it keeps, I think over the holidays, the girls and I will make a few batches for Caitlyn to take to school!

And here’s a link for how to get the food coloring off everyone’s hands (from mixing it, not playing with it)
