Play-doh fun with my kiddos!

Some fun family time!  About a week ago we had the grandkids over - the Kings on Saturday and the Jones on Sunday and I wanted to do something fun with them.  So I decided we make home made playdoh.  It is so easy to make and I love the feel of it when it is just off the stove and starting to cool but still warm.  So much nicer than the store bought stuff.  Here's recipe -
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pkg of Koolaid

Instructions -  In a medium saucepan mix together dry ingredients. Next mix in the water, oil, and orange extract and stir until a thick batter is formed. Cook the mixture over low/medium heat until a thick dough forms stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.  It only takes a couple minutes and dough will pull away from sides of pan, then remove from heat. Turn out onto table (be aware it will be pretty warm - but cools down pretty quickly) and knead until smooth. Makes about 2 cups of dough.

Makai and Kamili watching me cook it with anticipation.

The next day we made another batch.

Here's Paisley getting really intricate.

After a bit Prince opted for playing Mario Brothers on the Wii with Papa.
And finally Zamarah.  Actually I just took this picture a day or two ago.  When we made play-doh she feel asleep and I forgot to get her picture, but I couldn't leave her out :)

I so wish I was a little kid and part of your family. You love your family so much and it shows all the time. I pray that you all have a very blessed Christmas and look forward to seeing pictures of all the fun things. Thanks for blessing my day. :)
