As part of our list of 100 Fun, Frugal Things to Do This Summer, we made a batch of homemade play dough!
The girls took their handfuls of brightly colored dough to the deck where they cut, twisted and molded their clay into whatever their imaginations desired!
Making only the one batch, I divided it into three large handfuls which I colored red, blue and yellow. This allowed me to sneak in a lesson of mixing primary colors! Wonderful!
Here is a fantastic recipe for Homemade Play Dough that was kindly passed along by my Mom. With 7 children of her own, she has gone through her fair share of "play dough" recipes. I would agree this one is definitely the best!
Easy to make and mold, can be stored in the refrigerator in a ziploc bag or container and is edible (however not very tasty as Isabella unfortunately found out)!
