Playdough!

We made Home-made Playdough today. Nostalgic for me- my mom used to make us playdough on snowy days. I have never actually made it myself, but couldn’t resist when I saw the recipe on Apartment Therapy’s Ohdeedoh today.

Even the smell and taste came instantly back to me (salty, remember? Now I know this is because there is a cup and a half of salt in there). I only made half a recipe as we didn’t have enough cream of tartar, the outcome is a good amount for a toddler.

So far this has kept her busy for just over 4 hours today. Really a great thing to have- non-toxic, cheap and easy to make, and relatively low mess. I think I will make another batch to add to a gift for a Birthday Party we have coming up this weekend.

Tallis, however, was quite dismayed she wasn’t allowed to join in the fun. Sorry sweetie, not yet.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration! Although I’m dangerously close to getting sucked into spending my time reading craft blogs instead of doing any crafts now…

  2. Grace- have you seen Sew, Mama, sew! Go gather some motivation and projects!
