My Mom had to go away on a work trip and my Dad couldn’t get the day off, so I stayed home to watch my little sister. It wasn’t so bad.
We started out watching The Princess Bride, one of our favourite movies. I made stove top popcorn for breakfast (sorry, Mom) and we ate the whole bowl.
But then we kind of got bored. I looked through our games, and there’s only so many times we can play Monopoly before my sister gets upset about losing, so I looked up a recipe on the Internet for play dough.
We created the most amazing things and had so much fun. I mean…if you’re forced to look after your sister and all…
Want to make your own? Here’s the recipe.
Remember, though, play dough is for playing with, not to eat!
1 cup flour (250 mL)
1 cup salt (250 mL)
1 Tbsp. canola oil (15 mL)
drink crystals for colouring
enough water to form the dough.
Mix flour and salt. Add canola oil. Add drink crystals or food colouring to a couple of teaspoons of water. Then, slowly add water until mixture is pliable (spongy and claylike).
Enjoy. Store in a used margarine tub plastic container. Make more colours.
