Suddenly its October and I have started thinking about what homemade presents I will be gifting at Christmas, and hold the phone my friends, this year I’ll be sharing my favourites with you!
Up first is one for the kids. Play dough has been around for years, and its having a bit of a resurgence. Think amber tones, natural dyes, essential oils. Have fun and play around with it.
Jana’s Ombre Play Dough
Here’s the base recipe – tried, tested and recommended by my children’s day-care.
1 cup of Salt
2 T cream of tartar
4 cups boiling water
colour of your choice
Beat well then add 4-5 cups of flour
To make ombre play dough like I have here, make a white play dough and then split the mix and added various amounts of colouring.
I also added some lavender essential oils.
This recipe makes quite a lot and would be enough for a couple of presents. You could add some wooden utensils for role play or some cutters in complimentary colours too.
