Emma woke up one day and asked me to make homemade Play-doh. I had a new recipe for it I wanted to try out, so it had been in the back of my mind. So we told all the young ones that we were going to make play-doh. They each wanted to make their own color, so I put the colors of food coloring in and they got to mix it in to their play-doh.
Emma made purple, her favorite color.
The twins made a green color they called turquoise.
Our play-doh was very sticky so we had to keep adding flour so we could work with it. The play-doh took lots of salt and flour. Two cups of salt and five cups of flour.
Abby made pink, of course.
This is Emma’s face after she tasted the play-doh.
Abby really gets her whole body into playing with play-doh!
We used our Spring and Easter cookie cutters to make shapes. It felt like we were making cookies.
But as Emma found out, this dough was way too salty to make cookies out of.
Oh the joy of creating with play-doh!
And now for some action adventure!
Here’s a play by the twins:
And some more fun with Emma and Abby:
And you will be glad to know that Abby did eventually get apple juice!
