Yesterday I made Rowan some play dough for the first time!! He played with some at our stay and play group the other day, and seemed to really enjoy it. I found a really easy recipe for Kool-Aid play dough on the internet, and when he woke up from his nap, we pulled out the cookie cutters. He really liked it, and it smells so good, thanks to the Kool-Aid. Here's the recipe:
Kool-Aid Play Dough
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 pkg Kool-Aid (The unsweetened stuff in the small paper package)
2 Tbsp Cream of Tartar
1 cup water
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a small pot. Add water and oil. Stir over low-medium heat until it forms a ball around the spoon. (Just use common sense with the texture of it) It will seem a bit lumpy. Take it out of the pot and knead it a bit, with a sprinkle of flour if it needs more. Make sure to store it in an airtight container.
Yesterday Heather and I went for a walk, and we went to the local MCC to check out what they had. I found myself a good old-fashioned diaper pail for $1.50!! Sure can't beat that price! I cleaned it with bleach water, and it's ready to go!
