Edible Play Dough

 

 

Pretty sure I have posted this here before, but apparently it has vanished into thin air. So here we go again! My little one used to put everything in her mouth (except for actual food). So we made this play dough that is safe for them.

Homemade PlayDough Recipe

This homemade playdough recipe is simple, natural, and perfect for entertaining children. They enjoy making it almost as much as they enjoy playing with it!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of flour (whatever kind you have on hand)
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • ½ cup of water
  • 3 to 5 drops of natural food coloring

Instructions

  1. Mix together the flour and the salt.
  2. Mix together ½ cup of warm water with a few drops of food coloring.
  3. Slowly pour the water into the flour mixture, stirring as you pour. Stir until combined, then knead with your hands until the flour is completely absorbed. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour until it doesn’t stick at all.

Thank you to diynatural.com for the original recipe.

Week 2 – Theme for the week: Shapes

I realized I never got to posting last week. I first had visitors that stayed with us for a few days and then my mother in law had a very bad fall on Wednesday. She is still in hospital and will only be operated on tomorrow. It has been a real roller coaster week.

So I will just do a summary of what we did the week

On Monday we did something really simple as we had visitors. But they still loved it, esp since there was glue involved. I printed out some flower shapes vases and they had to stick the flower unto the correct vase according to the shape on the vase. I got it from here

On Tuesday I made them some play dough and gave them different shape cutters.

It was actually a very nice play dough:

1 cup conditioner

1 cup cornflour

food coloring

That’s it. Just mix it together. It felt a bit sticky so I just added some normal flour. Worked like a charm and it smells amazing.

Wednesday I spend in hospital the whole day so they just had free play.

 

On Thursday they just played with stamp and different shapes. They loved the ink, but oh the mess!

Friday we looked for shapes all over the house. That was also a lot of fun as you never know what they come up with. We also took our ‘construction sticks’ and made all kinds of shapes.
