the good play dough...

This weekend I had to make so many batches of salt playdough that I lost count and will be set for play dough for a long while. It was part of my Sharing Time lesson on Sunday and since we have 50+ kids I knew I couldn't do store bought. Then I remembered a homemade recipe to make your own that I've been meaning to try and I loved it so much that I couldn't help but play with it a little...lack of sleep makes me more than a little silly.
You can find the recipe here. It's Mom, Grandma, teacher, and Maribel approved!

My lesson was about the creation of the world and the things in it. Unfortunately I ran out of time to use the dough balls which made me so sad, especially after staying up so late making the multiple batches. Instead I gave them their little dough balls with instructions to make something that they are thankful for to do at a later time. Here is Maribel making snakes. Yes, she's thankful for snakes and bridges and her kitties but after each creation she just as swiftly squooshed them back into the ball whence they came.
Ah well, it's the thought that counts right? *sigh*

I hope your Valentines was sweet and filled all things loving.

Ethan loved his playdough! He played with it all week until it was so nasty I had to throw it out. Thanks for posting the recipe. We may have to make some this week.
