Play dough fun!

Mixing and kneading and forming.....

I love messy fun!!!

No, it's not a formula for hair loss, Dan!

Watch out below!!!

The other night, Violet was looking through a Williamson Rainy Day Play Book (I love those series of activity books), that I had left on the table, and found a recipe for Play Dough (Bread dough). She decided to make some all on her own. She got out the ingredients, mixed them up, and had Olivia help her. They played with it for a good couple of hours. Dan just had to join in with the fun and started tossing it in the air like pizza. I had fun taking lots of pictures and the girls had fun creating shapes, animals, and other fun stuff. They put it in plastic baggies, and put it in the fridge for future fun. They even cleaned up after themselves!

Here's the recipe:
1 cup water
1 cup salt
3 cups flour
mixing bowl

Just mix all the ingredients together, and knead the dough until it's mooth. The dough should feel rubbery and smooth when it is ready to play with.

The book tells you how to make bread people with it, using toothpicks and a garlic press (for hair). (heehee, I opened up the book for the recipe, and it has flour all over the pages for the recipe!!!)

Lots of fun for a rainy day!!! Which by the way has stopped, and we had a beautiful sunny, yet still cool, day at the park yesterday!
