This post contains pink.

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?

Now, I let Merrick introduce you my newest item in my shop, enjoy!

Have you ever made playing dough? I never bought store one, and don't intend to!


  1. That was a lot of pink in this post! The play dough looks great, the store bought play dough I had as a kid was wonderful for sculpting but they changed the recipe recently and it's awful now. :(

    I love all the new things you've been putting in your shop!

  2. How awesome! I'm going to try this. And the dolly is so cute!

  3. It's wonderful to "meet" you through blogging. I've been wanting to make waldorf dolls for my kids and I have to say, yours are some of my favorites I've seen. I love your daughter's big ones!
