My little "monsters" love to play with play - doh. I was at first buying the one from the play - store, you know the one that's suppose to be friendly and without chemicals for our children. My mother then told me that when I was a little girl she made her own play- doh for my siblings and me. I then started to search on internet about it and found many recipes. Some of them were ok but other not. A college of mine suggested me to try her recipe that she makes for her children and for the kids at school. It was amazing and it had a little bit of magic in it.
So today I thought that it was a perfect opportunity to test it out cause my monkeys are sick with flue and we can't go outside and play with the snow. And the little ones helped out too. So we are going to show you how it is done.
400 gr. flour
200 gr. salt
30 gr. citric acid
30 ml. sunflower oil
400 - 500 ml. boiling water
And then do like this:
Put all the dry ingredients one by one in a large bowl.
The citric acid
And then the liquid ingredients one by one.
The sunflower oil
The food coloring
And then the boiling water.
Mix all the ingredients with your hand until they become a dough.
Attention!!! the dough is very hot because of the water and always wear gloves to avoid discolor your hands from the food color.
Last but not least... add a little magic!!!! Add glitter in the dough
and shape it well to spread the glitter everywhere!
Voila!!!! The magical sparkling homemade play doo is ready!!!
Evangelos made a boat and Marilou a muffin
And I'm lucky too... I got an ice-cream.....
