red hot cinnamon play doh

We are studying Jesus, The Bread of Life.

Our Science, which goes along with our Names of Jesus Study, is about Bread...dough...yeast, etc. this week. One of our Science Experiments was to make homemade play dough.

So, I decided to add a little Valentine's fun to it!

Here's our most favorite homemade play dough recipe (beats boughten Play Doh anyday):

2 C water

red food coloring

2 T oil

3 t cinnamon

1 C salt

4 t cream of tartar

2 C flour

...mix all ingredients in your pan, stir over medium heat until all the lumps are (almost) gone, knead on your kitchen counter like you would bread dough (add more food coloring, if needed), and give to your excited kids. Mine love it all warm and squishy and smelly-good!

:: Enjoy twenty minutes without getting a drink for a little person, or breaking up a squabble between little people, or reading Go, Dog. Go! to a little person! ::

Now...if only our 'bread' turns out as well later in the week!
