During the month of December in Kindergarten I used to always have a play-dough center… We’d have these lovely smelling doughs available for cookie cutting, tower building, and snake making fun! I am going to try to make some for the boys this weekend because I know they will love it!!! I’ll take a picture once I’ve made some, or better yet, post your pics after you’ve made some on Mommyapolis’ facebook page and I’ll post them here!
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tsp. vegetable oil
spices- cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg
Mix the dry ingredients together. Just try out different amounts of spices until you get the scent and color you desire. We used a lot of cinnamon!!!! Mix the water and oil together in a separate bowl and then add them to the dry ingredients. Cook the mixture on low for 3-5 minutes or when the mixture starts to stick together like a ball. Take it out of the pan and knead it until it is soft and smooth. Let it cool before the little ones play with it!
2 cups water
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
4 tablespoons oil
4 tablespoons peppermint extract
glitter (optional, but oh so fun)
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and pulls away from the sides of
the pan. Form dough into a ball, sprinkle with glitter and knead until it is soft and smooth. Cool completely before allowing little hands to play with it!
