I have such vivid memories from my childhood about the stuff.
The feeling when you squish it.
Come on, all kids try it.
But today was the day!
I decided that she was old enough to not try to eat it, and I was right.
We played for 3 hours.
3 hours of her sitting in the same spot, it was like a Christmas miracle!!
Anyways, since I have become that mom that uses essential oils for everything, I figured, why not add them into play time as well?
I chose 4 oils that I love and that Ryleigh would be able to recognize.
The recipe is as follows:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons liquid cooking oil
Food coloring and essential oils.
Add first 3 ingredients to a saucepan, and stir to combine.
Add the next three, and mix until smooth.
Turn to medium low heat and stir constantly until it becomes a ball of play dough consistency.
Remove from the heat, and let sit for 3-4 min to cool slightly.
I split it into quarters, and then added the essential oils and food coloring and kneaded it in to distribute.
