We assigned everyone their spot by the stove because if you don’t…it’s not a good thing. Just saying. We were going to do four colours so everyone picked the colour they wanted to be “in charge” of.
I dumped the ingredients in the pot and they stirred it if it was their colour. It cooks up fast. I had to wash the pot between each colour, but it wasn’t hard.
After about five minutes of cooking it’s a bit rough looking. We put it on the counter to cool.
When it’s cool enough it’s time to knead it. This takes about five minutes and my daughter did most of it. At this point my five-year-old started complaining about the smell. It smells like commercial play dough – I hate that smell. The recipe I was using had recommended various spices to scent it but I didn’t have them. Then I had a brainstorm – essential oils. We used peppermint in the green, lavender in the blue, and lemon in the yellow. For the red I used cinnamon to help make it not so pink – it worked. We kneaded the oil or cinnamon in since it was too late to add it to the original mix.
The finished product – yeah!
Let the fun begin.
