When it rains

When it rains in the wet tropics, it pours!  Not just for a day, but sometimes weeks and weeks.  It's the price we pay for living in paradise I guess.  What to do with a 1 year old and a house that needs work?  Painting and gardening are impossible due to the humidity and rain so I guess the house gets a break today.  I find for Jack, we need an indoor plan of action!  Today we're going to make play-doh, sit on the floor and CREATE!  What fun!

My recipe for Play-doh
1/2 cup salt
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup water
food coloring

What to do:

Combine ingredients in a saucepan.  Heat gently stirring all the time. When the dough has a good consistency take it off the heat and allow to cool.

Thank you to  Kinderplanet for the recipe :)
