Making homemade Play-Doh

   Today two of the kids in our homeschool made some homemade play-doh today.  The boys helped measure out the ingredients, stir them all together, and knead the dough until it was the right consistency.  They had a blast.  Now they both say they only want to play with the homemade stuff instead of the kind you buy at the store.  I think it is because they made it themselves but also the homemade kind is softer.
The Recipe we use
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 T. vegetable oil
4 T. apple cider vinegar PLUS add enough BOILING water to equal 2 cups
food coloring

   Help the children measure up and pour the flour, salt and vegetable oil into a medium sized bowl.  Have the adult measure and pour in the vinegar and water.  Stir well.  Once it is mixed up fairly well, divide the mixture up into 4 equal sizes.  Place each glob into a separate bowl and add a few drops of food coloring.   Stir in glitter.  We used blue glitter with the blue food coloring, etc.    Once it is mixed up, place on a table and knead.  This dough is soft and fun and easy to make.   Store in baggies.
