After three days with nothing to do..I’ve been resourceful! Number one on our how to stop boredom list:
Home made play dough!

Here is what you need:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
Food coloring

Mix all of the above ingredients together until majority of the lumps are gone.


Stir over medium heat continuously until a ball is formed, about 4 minutes. Transfer the ball to wax paper or counter top to cool.


Once cooled, you can play! I’m still busy telling Paige not to eat it..but how good could it taste? Store dough in air tight containers.


What kind of crafts do you do with your children?
