Tupperware Recipe – Microwave Play Dough, Really! Homemade.
So the kids are all out of school. Now they are just bored with their toys. They say their is nothing on TV. It’s to hot/cold to play outside. So now they are under foot, complaining that there is nothing to do. So here is an idea that will keep them busy for a while.
1 cups white flour
2 tbsp salt
2 tbsp oil
1 cup warm water
2 tbsp cream of tartar
1 Jello 3oz pack
Mix all ingredients in Rock N Server or Vent N Serve Large Deep.
If you don’t have it, use a microwave containers that is deep.
Microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring every minute.
Cook until mixture gets so thick it can’t be stirred.
Let mixture cool.
knead it, adding in flour until it is no longer sticky (about 1/2 cup). At this point, you can add in extra food coloring to make the colors more vibrant, or even add glitter. I like to keep things simple, so this is how it looks with just the Jello.
This recipe makes a lot of play dough. You could easily half the recipe, and there would still be plenty to play with.
You don’t have to have special play dough tools, let them rummage through the kitchen and use whatever plastic container or other child safe object she finds.
When you are finished playing, store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. It will keep for at least a few weeks in the refrigerator, with daily use. If at any time it starts to be a little sticky, just add more flour.
