Play dough fun

Today I made play dough for the first time!

I have fond memories of my Mum making play dough for me as a child, I always loved playing with it, and remember sitting at my red ELC table making cakes, shapes and worms/snakes of course.

It's something I have been meaning to make for some time, but Alex had been given some play dough which unfortunately for me lasted longer than I thought it would (as in more than a year)!

Alex was so excited this morning as I was making it, it was a great bribe for him to get dressed quickly that's for sure!

I found the recipe over on the imagination tree and used the top one, as I didn't have any cream of tartar I used juice of a small lemon which seemed to do the trick as the play dough came out great to work with. (Thanks to jenniferslittleworld for mentioning that blog on your last post-helped me a lot once I'd remembered about it)!

There is something very satisfying when kneading warm play dough and mixing in the colours-ok so maybe I was slightly excited too!

I got out some of Alex's plastic cooking toys like chopping boards, knife, rolling pin as he has acquired a few different sets over the years, and gathered up lots of cutters.

He wasn't too fussed though and mainly just wanted to do his own thing, he literally spent all day playing with it apart from lunch, baking a cake with me (later post), and a quick half our playing some cbeebies games, and the last thing he said tonight was "can me play mellow play tomorrow" for some reason that's what he calls it, despite me saying it's called play dough 50 times already today :)

Even Sam wanted to see what all the fun was about

  1. Looks brilliant, and thanks for the mention! It's so easy to make playdough isn't it, and I love that there are so many different ways that you can make it different each time.

    1. Possibilities are endless with it aren't they! That's ok, not come across the imagination tree before so was a very handy link on your post :)
