What the kids have been up to ...

School Holidays have started  and although the weather was fantastic - well at least until mid-afternoon - we had to stay home. Mia is better today but not well enough to go running around. I needed to find something fun and new to do, that would keep her, and Louis, busy for a while. I realised that I never made playdough WITH them. I have made some FOR them, when they were too little to care about the playdough making process, but never since.

2 cup of plain flour
1 cup of salt
2 tbs of cooking oil
4 tbs of cream of tartar
1 cup of water
Food coloring

Mix the lot on the stove top until it forms ball. It should roll under the spoon and detach from the bottom of the pan.

Divide in as many portions as you want colours

make a small well, pour in some colorant, close well and knead,

until the colour show. This was Mia and Louis' favourite part.

They made pizzas,

and quiches,

A real feast,

with yummy cupcakes for dessert,

Two hours of playdough fun,

and I'm sure more in store for tomorrow.
