Wordless Wednesday- 4 Batches of Homemade Playdough Later

by Christine@TheAums on January 31, 2012 · 16 comments

Who doesn’t love fresh playdough hot off the stove? There is something so relaxing about kneading color into warm lumps of soft dough. Even more relaxing is that my kids will play with this stuff for hours over store-bought. Only one mystery remains: What else is Cream of Tartar good for?

Wanna know why else I’m talking about play dough? Because a certain someone is featuring me on her “Moms I Admire” series today! Ado from the Momalog was so kind to have me guest post on her blog. I’m extra thrilled considering she is a writer I admire very much…maybe I should start a series!

And yes, Ado rhymes with playdough!

Please head over to the Momalog to read my post Raising My Family: Who’s Raising Who? And be sure to leave Ado plenty of comments telling her what a nice job she did putting the post together. Aloha!

LOOOOVE making play dough at home. Doesn’t it make you feel like the coolest mom ever? :)

After making 4 batches I definitely felt like I deserved a cool mama award. Homemade play dough is one of my go to parenting techniques. If they are super fussy I either stick them in warm water or hand them warm play dough. Calms all of us down quick!

Assuming Tatar sauce but not neRly as good and healthy as play dough :) we got some for Christmas and it smelled like peppermint. Do you put any natural fragrance in yours?

I remember once experimenting with adding kool-aid powder for color and fragrance, but never essential oils. Definitely something to look into. And after reading your comment I googled it…no cream of tartar in tartar sauce. WTH?!

Now that is just plain silly!! I know Tatar people were barbarians, but to make sauce and not include cream of Tatar is just wrong…

I love making home made play dough. I made five pounds worth for Christmas. :)

5 lbs! Now that’s a lot of cream of tartar!

Thank goodness for Sams Club. ;)

Really? I better check our Costco for bulk.

I buy all of that kind of stuff at Sams Club. We have a Costco membership as well but it’s clear on the other side of Austin.
