We all struggle to amuse our bored tiddlers sometimes on rainy days. The other day I just wanted to slum it in my PJs and couldn’t face battling the wind and rain to get to a playgroup. She was getting a bit bored of her usual toys and had ‘helped’ me hang the washing up, do the hoovering and was bored of colouring. So we managed to have a fun hour with Playdoh, some plastic cookie cutters, Creation Station Dough Tools
and a Dough Modelling Plastic Rolling Pin.
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to make your own then here’s a good recipe:
Recipe for Playdoh
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tarter
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup boiling water
Mix the flour, salt, tarter and oil together. Put food colouring into the pan of boiling water and the dry ingredients. Cook over medium heat until it becomes a sticky, combined dough. Knead a few times let cool. If it remains too sticky add a little more flour until it’s just right!
