At My House...

By PaisleyJade - Monday, March 01, 2010

At my house today we have Miss 5 home with a very sore toe... so we decided to make Peppermint Playdough for the girls.

I have memories of my mother slaving over the stove cooking playdough up for us as kids.  Since then (thanks to Playcentre) I have discovered the easiest and most fail proof playdough recipe... and adding a few drops of essence like peppermint, makes it all the more fun!

(Head over to Buttons by Lou Lou to play along and tell us what's happening at your house today too).

Easy Playdough

2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons oil
food colouring (add essence if you want too)
½ cup salt
3 cups flour

Mix the first 5 ingredients then add flour and beat until smooth!
