Baby A woke up early from her nap one afternoon last week so I decided to take advantage of the one on one time to make some play dough. We take a toddler class once a week and the teacher makes the best play dough so we used her recipe. I decided to go with a St. Patrick's Day theme and made two batches. This play dough is so easy to make, the perfect consistency, and I know what is in it in case any of the dough makes its way to toddler mouths.
For this recipe, you will need:
- cream of tartar
- food coloring
The babies have just become interested in helping in the kitchen, so this activitiy was perfect. Baby A helped me with each step except cooking on the stove.
We started by pouring and mixing the dry ingredients.
Then we added the wet ingredients and food coloring. I used green with a few drops of blue in my first batch.
Then I cooked the mixture briefly on the stove and it became dough-like.
Once a more solid dough formed, I scooped the mixture out onto parchment paper.
After a few minutes of kneading, it was the perfect play dough!I made a second batch of play dough and added yellow food coloring, small green glitter, and large gold glitter. Baby B especially loves play dough and he asks to play with it pretty much every day!You can head over to the Galoop website for the full recipe. There are so many fun things for little ones to do with play dough and this is just the best recipe!
