Well we had a doozy of a day as seen here with the willful dumping of goldfish...this was no accident.
Despite the crazy day, Mr. Bright side enjoyed a field trip to the Jimmy Carter museum with his BFF and the other two enjoyed a fresh batch of homemade play dough, recipe below.
Homemade Playdough Recipe from the artful parent.
- 5 cups water
- 5 cups flour
- 2 1/2 cups salt
- 3 Tablespoons cream of tartar
- 10 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- Food coloring
Mix water, salt, cream of tartar, and food coloring. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring regularly until mixture is hot. Add oil. Stir in flour a cup at a time, stirring in between each addition. Mix until playdough pulls away from pan and is no longer sticky (pinch it between your fingers to test). Dump dough on counter, let cool a bit, then knead.
