DAY 8 (25 days of summer homeschool)

Have you ever had one of those days? The kids have found another energy "gear" and it's only Wednesday and feels like it should be Saturday...

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.
