I read these blogs about DIY this or make your own that and my heart swells thinking I could...but, then I don't. Time people, things take time. And I honestly don't know how these mothers of 5+ have the time to do all these homemade this and thats! I suppose they manage their days and work hard and are all organized. :)
Yesterday I came across an idea that I just knew I could do. And... proud to say, I did it! Homemade playdoh. It was fast, easy, and has already created LOTS of fun in this house for a certain 3 year old busy body. Tiffany, over at A Moment Cherished, posted the idea yesterday and I jumped right onto it. She also has so many great things to say about Adoption, homeschooling, marriage, being a pastors wife, etc... check her out. She's a powerful, Godly, deep read. You will not be disappointed.
Oh, you mean... you can't read my ingredient list? Ha! This is ALL I could find in the way of scrap paper yesterday. It's funny now, wasn't so much then. :)
1 1/4 c flour
1/4 c salt
kool aid packet
1 T cream of tartar
1 c boiling water
1 1/2 T oil
Mix the first 4 ingredients in a bowl and add in the boiling water. Stir with a fork until combined. I added in the oil as I was combining.
You can use any kind of kool aid - and I think that is the most fun about it. We used Black Cherry because thats what we had on hand. You could get all sorts of smells and flavors depending on what you used. :) Thank goodness we happened to have Pink!
It's seriously so much better then store bought!
