Looking for ways to keep your toddler busy? Here’s the first in my series – Homemade Playdough!
I waited a while before introducing playdough to Mal. I was a little worried – I knew how messy it was, how it could get everywhere, and dry itself where you didn’t want it. Then I came across a recipe for homemade playdough on Pinterest a while before Sean was born. In the weeks leading up to his due date, to keep myself from going stir-crazy, I decided to give it a shot and see how it went.
I used this tutorial on How Does She? to make the playdough. It turned out amazing! And it was oh-so-easy to make.
Cleanup was not nearly as bad as I had dreaded. I had him play with the playdough on an old pan, and that kept the mess nicely contained.
