Two of my sweets and I made Glitter Playdough today---cherry scented. The recipe was probably my favorite yet, velvety soft, and pliable. Playdough means a lot to me, so this is pretty important information. The kids loved it, and my fingers are still covered with blue and red food coloring after 7 hours. It'll wear off eventually---totally worth it!
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water--cool temperature...no need to boil
4 tsp. cream of tartar
4tblsp. olive oil
Almond extract---several drops
Mix all ingredients together and add desired amounts of food coloring. Sprinkle in favorite glitter and knead until soft. Break out the rolling pin and cookie cutters...let's make some sparkly cookies!
Miss Clara Jane making glitter playdough cookies---Her hair is extra cute, (has a touch of oatmeal from breakfast in it!) The more fun we have, the messier they are when mama comes to pick them up.No one said I run a squeaky clean ship
I should not be trusted to work with food coloring---I get way too excited and throw caution to the wind. Did I mention Ga-Ga doesn't run a squeaky clean ship? This week's manicure...blue and purple.
