A storm rolled in today. So far we've only had some rain and a brief hail storm. So brief, that by the time I finished running outside to bring the tomato plants in, it had stopped hailing. So, since the weather is a little less than ideal, what better use of our time than making play-doh! This is an adaptation of a recipe from http://www.sewliberated.com/. I kind of went out on my own.

You are going to need:

1/2 cup flour plus
2 TBS salt
2 Tsp oil
1/4 cup water
food coloring

and a helper!

Amara and I usually make a few batches at a time because we like to have a variety of colors. Grab the same amount of containers with lids and colors you will be using. Measure into each container the flour, salt, and veg oil. Give a little stir.
Next put a few drops of food coloring into the water, add to flour mixture, and stir it a little more!

Work it out on the table at this point. I always add more flour, I never measure how much, just keep adding flour until it is a nice consistency and no longer sticky. You got yourself some play-doh!

Now hours of fun begins!

 You can bake your creations in the oven to preserve them a little longer. Have fun!
