I have 2 energetic girls 4 and 9 years old. They love to play, sing , and scream. if feels like neverending play but I don't stop them from doin anything even if it means cleaning up the mess after the chaos.
One weekend i thought of something to keep them busy we made this last month and the kids liked it so we will do it again.
This is a simple Homemade Playdough that even a father can do at the same time you can teach you chil the motor skills, cooperation, creativity and imagination.
My kids love it we even put a powdered juice now to add color. easy to make because the ingredients is ready made.
kids can play it for a couple of days depends on how you store it. better after every play to store it in a dry tight container.
here is the ingredients
2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp of oil
Powder juice or food coloring
How to make:
1. combine flour and salt
2. mix in the oil , coloring and water
3. check the mixture if it still watery add more flour if not satisfied with the texture of the dough add some more of water but put little by little
4. knead with the kids and ENJOY!!!!
A cheap way to enjoy and bond with the kids
