Quick homemade play dough

Thinking outside of the box is a must as a mom. This is day 4 of rain so I needed to come up with something fun to do. We made a fort, builded with blocks, painted, and we were still bored waiting for lunch time. I needed to think of something fun to pass the time… and I needed to think fast. I decided to we would make homemade play dough. The girls love to cook and and they love to create things, so this was the perfect activity. We set all of the ingredients out on the table and the girls took turns adding them in the bowl. We decided to make our dough light purple, but you can leave it plain too. This is a simple and quick activity you can do with ingredients found in your pantry. We used cookie cutters and played for a while. This was a lot of fun!
