This week at IHCC the Tessa Kiros theme is "potluck". Well,
I took that to mean we could do anything.....anything at all.
I chose to make the Fun Dough in Apples for Jam.
I had so
making the dough. She wanted to make it blue. My daughter
hates, and I mean HATES pink, so that was not an option.
1 cup flour
1 cup fine salt
a few drops of food coloring (we used quite a bit)
5 tablespoons water (ours took more like 7-8 tablespoons)
Put flour and salt into a bowl and mix together with your hands.
Add food coloring and water and knead to distribute the color.
Add more water or food coloring until a you get a good
After playing and making shapes you can either let it air dry,
bake at 200 for 30 to 40 minutes or put it in a plastic bag to play
with another day. (If it gets a little dry, just add a splash more water)
Bay even got our Papillon puppy "Bindi" involved! I'm not
sure how much she enjoyed herself. She tried to eat the dough
and got a tongue full of salt. We did get a cool paw print out
of it though!
The best part besides all the fun is that you can put it in
the fridge and play with it again tomorrow. Just knead
it back together and (add a little water if it's getting dry)
and zip it up in a plastic sandwich bag.
Hmmm....I think I'll make some pink dough tomorrow
just to see what Bay will say. ;) I know..........I'm so mean!
