OK, so after making this I would say this is nothing like Play dough from the store. But fun. It is a great activity to do together that’s fast, you’re sure to have all ingredients and later they’ll play with it forever.
I did not want to do anything today that involved energy. Do you have days like that? Just bum around and do nothing. However, I forced myself to do something that would be fun for Emma.
So I Googled recipes using corn meal. I have tons. This is what I found:
Ingredients. Just mix all together and knead. That’s it. (recipe at the bottom)
I added 2 ingredients. Pink sparkles ( like for cupcakes) and seeds.
Sparkles: This added color without having to use food coloring, which I was considering. This way, when she rolls it out, it has a light pink color but doesn’t stain our beautiful white table.
For texture I added the seeds.
It has the texture and smell of basically a dough. Which it is. It’s edible so if you have a little one who has a hard time not eatinng their play dough, this would be good.
Ours is so brown because of the wheat flour I used. Yours can be a different color altogether. It made a lot and I already took some and am saving it in a plastic bag.
Enjoy and let me know how yours turned out. 🙂
2 1/2 C flour
Food coloring/sparkle/seeds/vanilla is all up to you.
Just mix together and knead. Store in a lrg. plastic bag.
