Since Brooks is now getting into everything (read: EVE-RY-THING), I figured it was about time to introduce him to some mommy-approved messy stuff. (Apparently my thinking is the house is TOO clean)
Play-doh itself is one of the greatest inventions known to mankind, but since B is in his "everything-MUST-go-in-my-mouth" stage, I figured I would see if I could make our own with ingredients I wouldn't freak out about if ingested (I draw the line as random pieces of dog kibble and dust bunnies).
You will notice its "done" when its thick enough to form in a ball and all the ingredients clump together.
Then, set in front of your freakishly adorable 10 month old and enjoy!
He even invited me to get in on the action.
After playtime was over, I balled everything up and put it in a glass pyrex in the fridge and we were able to use it for 2 more days before I tossed it out.
At one point, Brooks did try to eat it but the overwhelming salt taste made him stop pretty darn quickly. It did make his hands a bit salty, but definitely no dirtier than playing with playdoh. Super easy clean up just using a wet rag.
I think next time I make it, I'm going to throw some food coloring in there just for fun. Fingers crossed it won't stain B's hands, but I will let you know.
Has anyone else ever made homemade play-doh? Any other fun at-home recipes you know about?
