play dough from the pantry.

anyone who has had a child in preschool or day care has probably received a recipe for play dough so this is no big secret or grand idea.  however, in a last minute effort to occupy 5 children under the age of 6, i decided to throw together some homemade fun so i thought i would share….  especially since it worked like a gem.

1/4 cup salt

1 cup flour

1/4 cup water

mix together all ingredients and food coloring if you wish.  you may need to add extra water or flour to make the correct consistency {which feels a little like pizza dough in my opinion}.  we used plastic bags to mix our ingredients, but the directions i found said to mix in a bowl.

put some placemats out {we have some great ones here http://armommy.blogspot.com/search/label/place%20mats if you are interested} cookie cutters, rolling pins, and other extras and whalla, a play dough party!

have fun mamas!
