Organization is key on Pinterest, I've found. My boards could probably use even more organizing and fine tuning, but as of right now, I have boards featuring everything from stuff for my tiny peoples, fashion inspiration, natural home cleaning, toddler activities, and so forth. It's pretty wonderful. I find all kinds of stuff. My newest goal for myself, though, is to actually act on some of my pins. It's great to have them visually logged in one place, but if I never cook any of the meals, or try any of the art projects, or attempt the organizing ideas, I don't really see the point of having Pinterest.
Soooo, that's been one of my resolutions for 2012. (I rarely make resolution lists, but I made a few resolutions this year that I know I can keep, and this is one of them). With that being said, here is a recipe for Playdough I found via a pin that the elder boy + I tried out the other day. We are fans.
Here is the recipe we tried:
Cream of Tartar Playdough Recipe
- 2 cups of plain flour
- 2 cups of colored water (food coloring)
- 1 tbsp. of cooking oil
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1 cup of salt
- Place all of the ingredients in a medium size or large pan.
- Cook slowly on medium-high and stir it until the playdough thickens.
- Thought there would be more steps? Nope, we keep it simple.
Keep the finished playdough in a plastic container in the fridge, that way it lasts alot longer. This playdough recipe is similar to the traditional playdough recipe, make sure to take a look at thatplaydough recipe too.
This recipe takes less than 10 minutes, giving you more time to enjoying the finished playdough.
Who knew Cream of Tartar had more uses than just for baking Snickerdoodles??? Well, whatever it does in this recipe, it definitely made for some great playdough.
If you are interested in trying out Pinterest, let me know! I can send you an invite. =)
