My littlest girl and I rarely get time alone, just the two of us, and so when the opportunity came up last week to spend some special time together, I wanted to make it extra fun for her. Right now, at nearly two years old, she is obsessed with playdough. So, we cooked up our own batch of fun.
2T. cream of tartar
1T. vegetable oil
2tsp. food coloring
together into a saucepan over medium-low until it began to get firm like this:
I kneaded it a bit with the spatula while it was still in the pan until it was a little more firm and there weren’t anymore noticeably wet patches.
Then came the the fun part, letting it cool a moment and kneading it at the table. Just playing with this stuff makes it all nice and smooth.
I separated it into small pieces so it would cool quickly, since I had some small hands nearby that just couldn’t wait to get a hold of this stuff!
