The day started with play dough making, simple, easy and fun and something I so often, overlook.
Half a cup of salt
1 cup of flour
1 tbsp cream of tartar
1 tbsp oil
1 cup of boiling ish water
Food colouring
Essential oil

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl, add the oil, water, food colouring ( always pink here but your choice ;) ) and a couple of drops of an essential oil, for a heavenly smell ( we used lavender )
Stir and stir and stir ( bingo wings be gone )
Add more flour if too sticky.
Then as it starts to come together, get your hands in and knead until soft.

The diggers, police and army were very quick to arrive, must be pink lovers too.
