Look what Nadia and I did today!

We made our own play doh! It's the kind that you cook, but I find I like it better than non-cook varieties. Its texture is the most similar to store bought play doh and I dunno... I just really like kneading the warm doh. It's very theraputic.

After we made it and dyed it, we played with it. We made some spotted dinosaurs.

And a few flowers and houses and things.

Nadia must have played with that stuff for over an hour. She kept saying she likes "Mommy play doh" way better than store play doh.

You got fabulous colors! My mom used to make this for me when I was little. It is better than the other stuff. although for some reason I only remember having lots and lots of red, no other colors...

My mom used to make it too, but we never had the different colors either. I think ours was just always pink. It took a LONG time to get it all the bright colors. The red took an entire little bottle of food coloring, and the blue took a lot too. The yellow and green were much easier. You just have to keep working at it and working at it to get the bright colors. We scented ours too so it all smells like vanilla.
