Making Play Dough

When I had my beautiful baby girl, I wondered what to do with her all day long. I remember doing all kinds of searches on Pinterest and saving hundreds of posts to my DIY – Baby & Kids page.

So many of those ideas were for toddlers but I did come across a blogger that posted some good ideas for babies, for both babies that do not have good head control and babies that do have good head control. Her blog is called Fun at Home with Kids.

The really funny thing is, at Christmas, my mom got me this woman’s book! She didn’t even know I had found the blogger and was going to try some of her activities. When I opened the gift, I got really excited. My mom didn’t understand so she asked me why I was so excited. I told her, I’ve been following this lady’s blog and was going to do some of the activities! This is great!

Best gift EVER!

Book by Fun at Home with Kids

We’ve done one activity out of this book so far. It was great! We did the recipe for Gluten Free Play Dough. It was a really good start since my sweet girl had just turned one. She wasn’t putting too much in her mouth at the time but she put enough in her mouth for me to be cautious.

One of the best things about this recipe, I had everything I needed right in my pantry!

  • Baby Rice Cereal
  • Cornstarch
  • Water
  • Food Coloring
  • Veggie Oil

How nice! I’d love to post the full recipe or a photo of the book but it’s not mine so follow the link I posted above to get to her recipe.

It was really easy and quick to make. I was able to keep it in the fridge for a few days. When I took it out of the fridge, it was pretty crumbly and took some woman-power to soften up. Once it softened up, we had some more fun with it.

I look forward to doing more. I’m hoping we can do an activity from her book/blog every weekend.
