Obviously this isn’t a delicious recipe.
But this is the best play-dough recipe EVER.
If your toddler consumes it like mine obviously does, it’s perfectly okay. We don’t have to have heart attacks because we know exactly what went into it! Hooray!
With the weather turning cold I have taken to Pinterest in a desperate attempt to find appropriate indoor activities to keep my almost two-year-old busy.
If you are like me, and I’m sure you are because you have found yourself here, then here is an idea for you!
Baby Girl loves her play-dough and you can make as many different colors as you want.
- 3 cups white flour
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 tablespoon powdered alum
- 3 tablespoons oil
- Food coloring
- 2 cups boiling water
- Mix flour, salt and alum together in a large bowl. Add oil and food coloring and mix to combine. Quickly add hot water and stir with a wooden spoon until completely blended.
It’s usually salty enough that the kiddos only try it once and decide it’s not that awesome.
They also have REALLY short memories, so I guess you never know.
