Friday's Grand Connection Fun
by Mary May Larmoyeux
One of the things our grandkids love to do is make homemade play dough. (Okay, I confess, I love playing with it, too.)
It's really easy to make! Here’s the recipe that we use:
1 cup flour
½ cup salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cooking oil
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
Mix all dry ingredients. Add oil, water, and food coloring. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook until dough becomes one large ball. Empty onto waxed paper. Knead (press with your hands, in a rolling motion) until smooth and cool. Immediately store in an airtight container.
Clear plastic jars make perfect homemade play dough containers. The dough stays soft and pliable in them, and you can tell the color at a quick glance.
Hope that you and your grandkids have many fun hours playing with this stuff! If they live out-of-town, you might want to send them the recipe (or send their moms the recipe) and ask for a picture of them having “homemade play dough” fun.
