It was a rainy day. Too wet to go outside. Mommy said, "Let's make some Play-doh. What color do you want?" Little Miss said, "Pink. Pink, pink, pink." And so began our first time making Play-doh.
I have to admit, I've been curious about making homemade play-doh. I kept thinking to myself, who has the time to make play-doh, when we can buy it for just a few dollars? Today was a perfect day to try making the play-doh, since I don't like going shopping in the rain.
It was surprisingly easy and took less than 15 minutes from start (gathering materials) to finish (packing it away). I used Art Nest's fantastic recipe, except used less salt (we used 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon). We mixed all the ingredients into a large nonstick frying pan, then turned the heat onto medium-low and stirred occasionally for six minutes. Transferred as stated onto a sheet of wax paper and began kneading. That was it! It's so soft and I should warn you, kneading warm play-doh is very relaxing.
