I was browsing around for some inspiration when I received Anne‘s newsletter in my inbox. She was making play dough! I love making play dough and I hadn’t made a batch since Christmas so I thought: let’s do this! I didn’t follow her recipe but you certainly can.
Here is mine which doesn’t contain salt which is great for kids who still mouth everything, which means a younger sibling could play as well.
- 2 cups of flour
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1/2 cup of water
- some rosewater
- a few drops of red food coloring or whatever color you wish to use
- Mix it all until desired consistency!
Other suggested materials:
- I also had available some heart-shaped cookie cutters, some silver sparkles and white sequins as well as a pink flower which had done her time!
I really loved the consistency of this play dough and Sixtine did too! Let us know what you think if you try it! I hope you aren’t too tired of pinks, reds, and hearts yet! There is more to come!
