Play dough!

Play dough... Oh how wonderful it is, I am ashamed to admit I had forgotten the wonders of such a simple thing. Yesterday for the first time in too long I made play-dough for the kids to play with and (not kidding) they spent over 3 hours playing with it. So today when the two three year olds'  requested more pink play- dough I happily obliged!
All the play-dough from yesterday is now rainbow colored LOL
working on fine motor skills decorating pizza!
Making a play-dough bunny face :)
Of course mama had to add something educational to it !....
So how long till I get tired of cleaning it up????

2 cups water
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 TBS oil

Mix everything in a sauce pan heat over med heat until you have a ball of dough. remove from pan and knead. 
Yesterday I split up the big ball of dough and kneaded in food coloring. Today I added food coloring while it was cooking and the pink came out much brighter and nicer!

Thanks for the recipe. My daughter is constantly leaving it out and it dries up.
