Lately I've been feeling like kind of a failure as a mother. I've had so little energy the last few weeks, that sometimes- it's all I can do to keep up with meals, laundry, dishes... etc. Finding the energy to come up with something creative for Dallin and I to do definitely doesn't make the cut some days. And sadly, I feel like it's one of the most important things for me to do. I know that this isn't super creative, and we've played with play dough many times before... but I've never MADE play dough before! I know... Some of you moms are looking at me with disgust- haha. But I finally decided to make some of it up and make a bunch of different colors. It was fun to have Dallin watch as the colors changed, and actually feel like I made something with him.
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 Tbsp. Cream of Tartar
4 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
2 cups water
Spray non-stick coating in pan to make cleaning easier. Mix dry ingredients in a large pan. Add liquid ingredients. Stir over medium heat until dough pulls away from pan. Color may be added with the water or kneaded in after cooking.
I also have a question for everyone. What are some fun creative projects you've done with your kids? I need some easy ones that I can do with Dallin these last couple days I have before the baby is born, and also some for after she's born. I just want to be able to have some quality time with him. Please let me know your ideas!
