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

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)Survive til you Thrive!
