What is guaranteed to provide a minimum of an hours worth of entertainment for your child? That isn't electronic? Play dough!!
Since Faith is feeling much better, (even opted to do school work today) I decide to break out the home made play dough recipe. It has been a really long time since I've made this, but I always have the ingredients on hand.
It can get a little messy for the parent.
But it is fun for the children!
I seriously suspect that the older 2 kids are considering joining in the fun when their school work is done.
Here is the recipe if you are interested:
Home-made Play dough
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Salt
2 Tbs. Cream of Tartar
1 Tbs. Oil
1 Cup Water
Over medium heat combine dry ingredients and oil. Slowly add water. Stir until ball formed and pulling away from sides. Kneed with food coloring. Stores well in plastic bag or air tight container.
