So I finally busted out my mom's old play dough recipe this Friday and made a batch for Matilda. As soon as it was finished cooking I was hit with the scent of my childhood. It is so strange to have memories come flying back to you so strongly from just a scent.
The dough is super soft and kept the girl entertained for a good 30 minutes straight. While we are only two days out at this point my mom says it lasts really well.
Homemade play dough
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup water
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over low heat. Will form a ball when ready. It cooled really fast and was ready for "mooshing" almost immediately.
