Homemade Rainbow Play Dough – Play Group Party

23 Sep

homemade play dough recipeThe color and feel of homemade play dough is intoxicating.  This stuff is so much fun and so easy to make I can’t believe I wasted so much time with store bought play dough.  You can find recipes all over the internet, especially pinterest.   Follow me HERE.  I used 1 cup of flour,  1/3 cup salt, 1 tablespoon of oil, 2 teaspoons of cream of tartar, 1 cup of water and food coloring.  Then, I doubled it so I could make enough for both play groups.  You stir it all together in a pan on low to medium heat until it starts to get hard around the spoon.  It takes about 4-5 minutes.  Then just take it off the heat and let it cool.  It feels so soft and smooth, it’s amazing.   We had a blast mushing it up, standing in it, and making rainbow towers.  It was so nice knowing the little ones could put it in their mouths with out cause for alarm, which they definitely seemed to do every time the moms looked away.  Sneaky little kids.  I loved keeping all the colors in a big tub too, so kids could really get in there.  Gigi definitely wasn’t shy about that.  It was a really fun day.
