A Play Dough Party

Let's all admit -- Play Dough is FUN!  I think it can be therapeutic as well.  Soft squishy dough squeezed through your fingers....creative & imaginative play..... laughter, creativity, joy....

It can be messy, but really EVERY child really does love to play with the dough!! 
My girls decided that they would have a play dough party today.
They donned themselves with chef/artist hats & aprons! You must dress the part!
Out came the homemade play dough (recipe & links below)....and then came the creativity.

Honestly, they spent hours creating with play dough.  
My dear Sophia wanted to preserve the memory of their creations with pictures.  (The play dough lasted only a week on the countertops before it dried up and was shamely put to rest in the garabage)
She plans to make a photo journal book of her "creations" -- what a great idea!  So, that is our next step in the creative process for my get a photo album and create the Play Dough Creations Journal!

Home Made Playdough
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tarter
2 cups of water
1 tablespoons mineral oil
food coloring
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until stiff. Allow to cool, then knead.

THIS SITE was a great place to find all sorts of recipes for play dough! 

Play dough Party was super fun!!
