Today is the first day of Summer Break for the kids. We decided to make play dough at home for the first time. It was really easy and took less than 10 minutes. Here is the recipe, you'll probably have the ingredients in your pantry already:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup water
Mix together the baking soda and cornstarch in a pot, breaking up any lumps. Mix in water and food coloring. Place the pot on the stove over medium heat stirring constantly. As soon as the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the edge of the pot, turn the heat off. If overcooked, the dough will be crumbly. Transfer to a bowl and cover while waiting for it to cool. Once cool, knead the dough and have fun!
