Happy Wednesday to you! It's time once again to post another WFMW tip!
I'm always looking for fun projects to do with Snuggle Bug (he's now 3 years old) and my Parents magazine gives me a lot of great ideas.
We've bought Snuggle Bug Playdough in the past because he loves, loves, loves playing with it. The problem is that it dries up so darned quickly if he leaves it out even for an hour or two so we've gone through a ton of Playdough over the past 2 years.
When I saw this homemade play dough recipe in my Parents magazine, I decided to give it a try. I invited one of Snuggle Bug's little friends over and we all made it together.
This play dough is amazingly soft! It still dries out over time, but it takes much longer for that to happen that the store-bought kind. I like that I know exactly what ingredients are in this play dough, in case Snuggle Bug or one of his friends decide to eat it (thankfully he's past that put-everything-in-your-mouth stage, but you never know). Best of all, the kids had a blast helping to make it!
Homemade play dough works for me. To find out what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!
