How to Make Homemade Playdough & Play with Toddler
Hello there, moshi-moshi 😀
Wish you were in great health together with your bundles of joy *yatta*
Have you ever made your own Playdough?
In my childhood days, I didn’t know that we could possibly create our homemade Playdough.
Last 2 weeks, my kiddies had request to make their very own Playdough.
We surfed on the Internet and gathered all the details that we needed and Papa drove us to nearby bakery shop to bought the specific stuff.
And today, I would like to share some tips on How to Make Homemade Playdough & Play with Toddler:
If you are looking for a way to entertain your kiddies on a rainy afternoon, making fresh homemade Playdough can do the trick.
By having the children help with the process of making the dough, the actual fun for them starts the moment you get out the bowl *indeed* 😉
Make a rainbow of colors for even more fun, as toddler could use the Playdough to become young sculptors.
Once you’ve made Playdough once, the kids will start begging you to make it every day *oh, yes!*
Things You’ll Need:

- 3 tbsp. of salt

- Step 3:
Place the Playdough mixture into a pan and cook over medium heat. Stir until dough darkens slightly and becomes stiff.
Stir n stir…
- Step 4:
Let the mixture cool slightly. Then knead the dough until it reaches the appropriate consistency.

- Step 5:
Add a small amount of food coloring to color the dough. Keep on rollin’ 😉
My favorite blue color!
- Children can learn valuable skills, such as counting, by helping to measure out the ingredients.
- Children love to help knead the warm dough.
- Save the dough in a tightly sealed container or bag to prevent it from drying out.
- Be cautious when having children help around a hot stove.
