Today’s activity on our Advent Calendar.
Lincoln was very excited to make Peppermint Play Dough play dough, especially since we just threw away the Pumpkin Pie Play Dough that we made a few weeks ago. All 3 kids and I enjoyed playing with it. Such a simple and fun family activity to break up the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.
What You Need:
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup salt
- 4 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1/4 cup cooking oil
- 3 tablespoons peppermint extract
- Red food coloring (we used an entire 0.3 oz vial)
What To Do:
Mix all ingredients together except the food coloring. Cook in a nonstick pan on low heat, stirring constantly until it pulls away from the pan. Remove from heat and stir in food coloring. Allow to cool for 20-30 mins. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Smells like a yummy candy cane! But don’t eat it. Yucky!
And so much fun to play with!!
