Welcome to Day 2 of Young Toddler Valentine’s Day Activities.
Day Two: Valentine’s No-Cook Playdough
I found a new recipe for no-cook playdough and thought I’d try it out with J. I love having him help me cook, so I decided to have him help with making the playdough. This was especially great for him to help with because didn’t require the use of the stove like traditional homemade playdough does.
I got this amazing recipe from Anna @ The Imagination Tree
2 cups four
1 cup salt
2 tbsps cream of tartar
2 tbsps oil
1.5-2 cups boiling water
*Combine all dry ingredients together and then add oil.
*Pour in water and mix and knead with hands. It will loose it’s stickiness and form a nice ball of dough.
* You can add glitter or a fragrance to make it more fun. Also a few drops of glycerin makes the dough stretchy and shiny.
I did most of the kneading because J doesn’t have the strength yet. I did it in front of him and then let him continue to knead once it was already a good texture.
From there I gave him some red gems, a heart cookie cutter, and a spoon.
This took less than 10 minutes to make and was so much fun!
