Hello Hello!! So today this sums up the day :
Rain, Rain, and more rain……. And I have 2 kids saying I am bored and 2 dogs that refuse to go outside…….. So to entertain the kids at least I decided to make some home made playdoh.
Here is the recipe I finally decided on:
I added all the ingredients to the pan, no certain order, then stirred them all together. Once I had them pretty well mixed together I turned on the stove at medium heat.
Keep stirring the mixture because it will start to thicken up. This is why I suggested a sturdy spoon. Mine was not so much sturdy and I had to swap out to help stir the mixture.
Once it is a big lump remove from the heat and knead the mixture some to finish mixing it.
Now ***DISCLAIMER ALERT*** you just removed it from the stove, it will be HOT. Please be careful with the mixture. I dumped to the counter and let set for a few until i could knead it without burning myself. Also make sure the kids do not instantly want to grab hold of it if they are helping you make the playdoh.
It may start out a little sticky just keep kneading it together and it will start to feel like regular playdoh.
Now you can stop here and it is ready to go. I opted to make it an aromatherapy style playdoh and I added essential oils. I waited until the playdoh was cooled and kneaded it into the playdoh since heat effects the essential oils. I made a little divot, added a few drops of oil and then kneaded it in. I did this until I had the desired smell I was looking for.
I flopped it on the table and the kids were so excited for the playdoh, then my daughter smelled it and got even more excited because I added oils to it.
Once they were done I put it in a ziploc bag, removed the air and zipped up to store. Next one I make I want to add some glitter to the mix 😉 Hope this helps on your next rainy day 🙂
