for a rainy day…

….or a perfectly sunny day in Manila, without a car and no motivation to brave the flaming humidity hug.

Homemade Playdough = happy, focused 17-month old for 30 min. Hopefully more of that later. And proven safe when eaten. ┬áCompliments of Mel’s Kitchen Cafe

…and a HUGE gracias to Mrs. Stauber for saving my bacon with the “how to occupy a toddler” ideas. The gift that keeps giving.


1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

1 tsp cream of tartar

1 cup water

1 Tbsp cooking oil (veg or canola)

4-6 drops food coloring (or not)

Mix dry ingredients in medium saucepan. Mix wet ingredients in separate bowl. Add wet to dry and stir well over medium heat until dough pulls away from pan. Turn out on oiled surface and knead until smooth.
