Last week while cleaning out a closet I came across a bunch of clay that I have been saving for a rainy day. While the little guy was very excited and wanted to give it a try he had a tough time due to the hard consistency of the clay. We have solved the problem with homemade play dough.
Here is a simple recipe that I found online:
Easy Peasy No Cook Play Dough!
2 cups of plain flour ２カップ フラワー
4 tablespoons of ‘cream of tartar’ ４大さじ クリームオブタータ
2 tablespoons of cooking oil ２大さじ サラダ油
1 cup of salt 1カップ 塩
2 cups of boiling water ２カップ お湯
Food coloring 食品着色料
Just pop it all in a mixing bowl and mix!
It might not come together at first, but keep on mixing, it will eventually take on that nice play doughey texture.
Try adding bits and pieces like glitter and sand to make it even more fun!
