It was an exciting day at casa de Uncle Dunk & Auntie Kelsey because Great Auntie Barb came over make homemade playdough with the kids! (I call her “Great” Auntie because she’s “Aunt” to me and “Great Aunt” to my niece and nephews.)
Great Auntie Barb’s homemade playdough recipe came from an old book…
The recipe called for the following ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt (I think 1/4 cup would suffice though)
2 Tablespoons veg oil
1 teaspoon alum (Great Auntie Barb had something called septic pencil that we used instead of alum)
Mix the first set of ingredients first, then add:
1/2 cup water (slowly add the water, you may not need all of it, or you may need more)
The kids helped Great Auntie Barb mix up the playdough ingredients…
We added the food coloring to the water in order to help it mix in the dry ingredients better.
After they were done mixing, it was time for playing!
Of course, Uncle Dunk made an alligator…
Thanks for the fun day, Aunt Barb!
