Play Dough

This past weekend I made homemade play dough for the boys. I used this recipe, which calls for kool-aid mix - it gives it the fun color AND the play dough smells fruity! I made one batch but divided the recipe in half so that I could do two different colors (note, don't use Lemonade Kool-Aid as the color isn't strong enough and you'll still have to add lots of food coloring). The play dough is now stored in some Glad-ware, ready for use again this week!

The boys had fun playing with it and of course sampling it. Thankfully I think the dough is too salty for their liking, because they didn't eat much.

Fun! Emma and the boys love playdough too. Here's a tip for ya--if you keep the playdough in the fridge, it will last a loooooong time!

What a great idea! I have been thinking about buying Grayson some playdough, but I have been a little scared. We may have to try this sometime this week.
