I stumbled upon this book at the Sally Ann quite awhile back. It has crafts and recipes that are SO easy but a tonne of fun. We have made the play-dough in here two times and it lasts and stays pliable for ages. We made it about six months ago and it is still going strong! It is softer and smoother than the store bought stuff and not feeling rough from too much salt like most homemade recipes. I thought may be someone else out there could use a fabulous play-dough recipe: 500 ml (2 cups) flour 250 ml (1 cup) salt 5 ml (1 tsp) cream of tartar 25 ml (2 tablespoons) oil 5 ml (1 tsp) food colouring (optional, but more fun, in my opinion) 500 ml (2 cups) water -Mix ingredients in saucepan over medium heat while stirring constantly. It's done when dough starts to leave sides of pan. - Remove from saucepan and knead for a few mintues once it's cool enough to touch. *We just keep ours in a closed container when we're finished. A totem pole!
This blog contains a fair amount of swearing, painful and difficult subject matter. If you have objections of any kind, I believe it's your right to not agree. But, please, keep those objections to yourself and keep yourself busy withsomething else.
A few musings of a homeschooling, crafting, neurotic, organic loving and, most of all, kiddo adoring mommy...I've now become a widow. My best friend and husband died of a pulmonary embolism on March 25th, 2008. This blog has now become a place for me to mentally unload and try to figure out how to do this and who I am without him.
