I've meant to make a batch of play dough for Mariann for some time now. Somehow it didn't get done before Yule and I was a little scare I'd screw it up anyway...but I was wrong.
It really is easy.
And SO soft! And it smells great.
The day before yesterday, I read this post at Sew Liberated. I used the recipe she suggested, adding a tea bag of field-berries in the water.
After 7 min (and some more time for cooling) it was good to knead, and felt awesome. I went hunting for sculpting stuff.
Maman made the family, Mariann added hats!
Mostly cooking tool that came with a set she was gifted, my pattern wheel, the zester (did I ever used it?) cookie cutters and popcycle sticks. I rubbed all that is wooden with olive oil, and put it all in this brown gift box. I don't have access to canvas by the meter so I pulled out the toy story mat.
We store the dough in that pyrex container.
I had nothing to purchase. I love a good free project.
Of course, Mariann loves it and played and played and played.
She also get everything back in the box once she's done. We didn't even have to ask. How great?
