Ok so Corwin finally made it back from his month long hiatus and I could not of been more excited! So we had planned fun stuff to do… swimming, parks, even dishing out $100 on good seats to the circus THINKING he would love it (hell, I don’t even regret that one. I had a GREAT time. Think I’m too old to be an acrobat?! Anyway…). You wanna know what his favorite activity has been so far? Making playdough….
Seriously. The cheapest form of entertainment all week. Recipe more or less as follows….
1 cup salt
1 cup water
1/2 cup flour (you will need to knead in quite a bit more after heating though)
You mix all this crap in a pot until it thickens, and mix in more flour until it feels less “sticky”.
I know there’s a million recipes for playdough, but I had to work with what was in my kitchen and this recipe fit that. Who knows how long it’ll last but we have been having a super time of it!
So fyi if your kids are pissing you off and you want a few minutes alone… 😉
And it was especially great for me (with finances so tight and FINALLY getting my little guy home) to spend some time getting messy together.
And here’s a pic btw, it has been too long!
