Trying to keep the golf ball in the spoon while doing the obstacle course:
And, finally, making play-dough from scratch:
Proud of the finished product:
If you’re interested in doing a play-dough project with your family or church group, here’s the super simple, el cheapo, single-serving, no-cook recipe we used. Disclaimer: I have no clue as to the life expectancy of this dough, but it does hold up nicely during a 10-15 minute craft session.
Prepare a small plastic bag for each child that contains:
– 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 2 Tbsp (1/8 cup) salt
Give each child a spoon and a small bowl, and instruct the children to pour the contacts of the bag into a bowl.
To each bowl, add:
– 2 Tbsp (1/8 cup) water
– 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
– 1 or 2 drops of food coloring
Stir the mixture with a spoon until a ball forms, then remove the dough from the bowl and knead it until smooth and a nice consistency. More flour or water can be added as needed if the mixture is too sticky or dry. Play with the dough, then plop it back into the baggie to take home!
