When the kids are home for the summer, besides playing outside and having beach time, we love to create. I love to see my kids create! I pull out the paints, crayons, color pencils, glue, yarn, rainbow looms, and play dough, then watch them go. It is always fun to see what their beautiful little minds come up with.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been making different play doughs. I shared a simple 2 ingredient recipe over at MrsTee’s. Today, I’m sharing another simple recipe with a few more ingredients.
In a large pot dump all of your ingredients, including the food coloring (we made three separate batches) and mix over medium/low heat. Make sure to keep stirring until the mixture creates a ball. On parchment paper, or foil in my case, I was all out of parchment, let the dough cool before you stick your hands in.
Once the dough was cooled down enough I kneaded the dough before handing over to the kiddos. Now, it is time to turn it over to those beautifully creative little minds and watch imagination at play.
We wanted to go for the “Frozen” feel 🙂
When the kiddos were done playing with their new play dough, we packed it all up in old Play-Doh containers. Here is the homemade play dough a few weeks later, still squishy!
