Today we needed a break. Our little bean was not feeling so hot and desperately needed some down time. Whether you're home bound due to illness, winter weather or just a need to stop the busy, this is an easy way to have some fun together. You don't need much and I've got an easy recipe to help teach your littles how to cook AND keep them playing for a while.
Our girls like to cook and help in the kitchen. These kinds of recipes lend themselves to conversations about measurement, states of matter, and change of states, and basic kitchen safety (that's hot when it's red!). Here's what you need:
1 cup Flour
1 cup Water
2 Tbsp Salt
2 Tbsp Cream of tartar
2 Tbsp Cooking oil
1 3oz pack Jello (weird I know, but makes great colors!)
Glitter if you like
Essential oils to choose your scent!
1. Measure and add all ingredients (except glitter and essential oils) to a pot
2. Heat on medium, stirring consistently, until it starts to form a ball
3. Remove from the heat and let it cool (stick it outside for a bit if it's chilly)
4. Turn on a floured surface and knead, adding in flour, glitter and 5-10 drops essential oils, until it's no longer sticky
5. Pull out the cookie cutters and rolling pins and play!
