Recipe: Play Dough

Little Penelope had her eight week jabs yesterday and so was in need of quite a bit of quiet, mummy time to ease her through. Especially having only just gotten over the viral meningitis she picked up in her first few weeks! Enter the mummy hogging toddler tornado! Also, formally known as Theon (her big brother).  He just wants to love her and hug her and squeeeeeeze her tight, like really tight, around the neck and make her play with lego. I think you get the picture. So, how the hell do you manage to meet the needs of two under two? For me it’s home made play dough for the win, every time.

PREP TIME:
A matter of minutes

COOK TIME:
0

Ingredients:

  • Flour
  • Salt
  • Veg Oil
  • Water
  • Food Colouring

*Instructions:

•Take 1 cup of flour and place in a bowl
•Add all your wet ingredients (2 table spoons of salt, 1/4 cup of water, and 1 table spoon of veg oil)
•Mix with a fork
Now add a couple splashes of either food colouring or non-toxic/washable kids play paints and knead until the dough cleans the bowl and the dough is no longer sticky

*Repeat until you have a nice selection of colours.

Tip

Once made wrap in cling film and store in the fridge to pull out when ever you need just enough distraction time to finish your cuppa!

Blissful Domestication

      It’s good for learning the colours too but in all honesty it’s the only way I get to finish a coffee… For that reason I possibly love it more than he does!!! 😂

      Yes, but I’ve now realised play dough is a gate way to slime isn’t it!! #Imnotready 🙂

    This is brilliant. I never realised making play dough was so easy. My little man loves play dough so i’ll have to make him some. Thanks for hosting #ourlittleloves. Sorry it’s taken me so long to comment. Hugs Lucy xxxx
