Cooking plus play dough equals right up Miss Blair’s alley! She and I made play dough back during the holidays. She had a blast.
One thing I don’t mind is a royal mess. It all cleans up with a little work!
Not only does the little stinker like to cook, she likes to swipe the camera remote!
I let her stir before I turned the burner on.
Then she took all the pictures while I finished off the play dough.
The one thing missing – the mint smell. Our play dough when I was a child always smelled like mint. My mom said that my great aunt told her to put Oil of Peppermint in it (and supposedly it’s found at the drug store). Well, I didn’t have any of that, so I used grape drink mix in one and vanilla in another. It just wasn’t the same though, so I’m going to have the mint for next time!
I used a recipe I found here. All of the recipes seem good, and I used some of the play dough tips, too. The vanilla play dough smelled yummy! I just wish I had had my mom’s icing coloring – the drops don’t work so well. A little drink mix would probably be just right, but I used the whole package, so our purple was pretty much black!
Definitely a fun activity to do with the little cook in the household!
