If you want a really fun activity to do with your kiddo... who is bored and needs entertaining, well you're in luck! Make Play Dough! If your kid loves to help you in the kitchen like mine does, then this is perfect for bonding.
You'll need basic products that you probably already have in your cupboards. What you'll need:
1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tarter
1 Tbls vegetable oil
**Put all of the above ingredients into a medium sauce pan and stir until smooth. Then put your sauce pan on medium heat on your stove and keep stirring until it forms a big ball. Dump it out onto wax paper and let it cool for about 10 minutes then have your kids help you knead it until you have a nice smooth ball of play dough!
Step by step pictures of the process below. Courtesy of my adorable helper. ** stirring it on the stove top is for the adults only.
Now let them play and be creative. My little man is still pretty young, so I got him started with a little play dough head. He loved it and enjoyed his play dough after that. He even gave it a good taste and almost threw up. Yikes! He learned his lesson and hasn't tried any since. ;)
Leave it to my daughters imagination to come up with her own little Whoville. Cute!
