Easy DIY Homemade Playdough

With only simple ingredients and few minutes of your time, you can easily make play dough at home for your kids to enjoy.

Image

I love play dough because it keeps little A busy for minutes upon minutes. But sometimes I hate it when it crumbles on the floor and the entire roo .Because of this I stopped buying store-bought playdough. Then, one day when little A was begging me to make a playdough instead.

I searched on to You Tube and  could not believe how easy it was to make playdough in my own kitchen.

Image

Little A had fun picking out the color he wanted, then he continued to play with the dough for hours. It is still a favorite way to spend his play time. Making play dough in your kitchen is easier than you imagined. It saves you money and creates lasting childhood memories.

As a mother of two and house manager of our home I would say that taking care of our skin is really important. A good routine is vital: cleanse, hydrate, repair and moisturize.

Humidity and extraordinary extremes from 50 degree heat to cold air conditioning can leave the skin dry and dehydrated. It’s important to protect the skin from drying out but with the weather here mean that thick lotions or creams are no-no and very uncomfortable.
