Looking for something fun and easy to keep the kids happy and busy inside on rainy or cold days? Try making your own playdough. It’s fun to make together and your kids can then enjoy it on their own.

Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients except food coloring into a medium size pot.
  2. Cook over a medium to medium low heat, stirring together ingredients until they start to bubble and come together. This should take just a few minutes.
  3. When the mixture looks like playdough consistency, remove it from the heat and allow to cool until it can be handled, but is still warm.
  4. Add gel food coloring and mix by hand until color is spread evenly throughout. This is my daughter's favorite part to help with! You can separate the dough to make multiple colors or use all the dough for one color.
  5. Store in a Ziplock bag or air tight container.
Recipe Notes

So you can see approximately how much this makes, my seven-year-old is holding a full batch of this homemade playdough in her hands after mixing in the gel food coloring.

Laura
Laura is a mom of three who works full-time from home as a Development Director for a children’s charity. Laura grew up in Maryland, spent her 20s living in Southern California and South Carolina, and has spent her 30s in Iowa, moving to Iowa City in 2010. Laura loves dancing, reading, baking, and music. She and her husband Ryan started dating in college (gasp – about 20 years ago!) and they have been sharing life’s adventures ever since. Their biggest adventure is, of course, parenthood. With three kids, the action is non-stop - which is just the way Laura likes it. Laura sometimes gives a good impression of having it all together, but she forgets about school picture day, drops her kid off on the wrong day for birthday parties, and those are just the things she’s not too embarrassed to tell you about. She makes some killer chocolate chip cookies, though, and hopes that might make up for the rest.
