It is so stinkin' hot right now! I have been trying to do other activities that don't require us to go we made playdough...well I mostly made it... because you have to make it on the stove, but Kaylee did help measure out the dry ingredients :) This recipe turned out really well. Here is the recipe, just in case you are stuck inside too:

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon powdered alum
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons vanilla
food coloring

Mix all dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until reaching the consistency of mashed potatoes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and food coloring. Divide into balls and work in color by kneading the playdough.


Playdough on the stove:

I divided the play dough and kneaded in blue and purple food coloring:

Kaylee informed me that this is a "lolly pop" she made with playdough and a spatula:

Can't resist a black and white photo:
My little man was getting into dog food and blocks...of course...I have to always keep my eye on this one :)
