Little Man loves to play with play-doh. It has provided him many hours of entertainment, for which I'm oh, so thankful. Unfortunately, however, play-doh dries out and becomes unworkable after a while. All of Little Man's play-doh was reaching that stage when I came across a timely recipe for homemade playdoh.

And so one day last week Little Man and I made some of our very own play-doh. He especially enjoyed dumping the measured ingredients for me, choosing what color he wanted his new play-doh lumps to be, and kneading in the food coloring.

Then he enjoyed rolling out his new play-doh, cutting it with "cookie-shapes" and scissors, and making colorful "hot dogs." And he just keeps enjoying it over and over again.

What a great project for us to do together!

AWESOME! Kaleb and I made homemade play-dough last week. I put koolaid in ours to color it and it makes it smell oh-so-good! Give it a try if you didn't do that this time!!! (instead of food coloring)
