One recent night when Chris didn't get home until late, Ava Grace and I decided to spice up our night with some dough! Play-Dough that is! The homemade variety!
We hopped on Pinterest for a quick recipe. I was looking for one with few ingredients that I had on hand and that could be eaten without causing harm.
We tweaked it.
In the food processor we mixed the original recipe of:
1 cup warm water
1 cup flour
1 tsp cream of tarter
1 Tbs oil
1/4 cup salt
We started on low speed and went all the way up to high. After 2 or 3 minutes this is supposed to turn into dough. Um.... didn't even come close. Soooo... we continued to add flour a heaping spoon at a time until a ball formed. I then dumped it out onto the floured counter top and kneaded in flour until it was no longer sticky and a nice fluffy play dough consistency! It worked great! And... after playing, the crumbs dry out and sweep right up! It made a lot... we made it all pink this time. We still have a big blob in a zip lock bag. It made so much I just throw it away after she plays with it, so she gets fresh every time! We'll be using this recipe in the future for sure!
