With the consistent rains of this spring, my family has found themselves indoors a little more than usual. And with the excitement of the bustling world outdoors right now, things indoors were seeming a little dull to my little people. On a particularly rainy day, we made a few batches of all natural dough to add a new twist to our indoor world. We just used what we had on hand, nothing fancy. Here’s my rough estimate on the recipe: 1/2 cup flour; 1/2 cup dyed water (I used hibiscus tea to make pink, which worked pretty good. Some of the other, subtler colored teas did not work that great since I was using whole wheat flour. So, I resorted to using some of the kid’s watercolor paint dissolved in warm water and it served the purpose.) 2 tablespoons salt; 2 tablespoons cream of tartar; 2 tablespoons cooking oil. Mix together in a small pan. Cook over medium heat until your mixture thickens into a ball of dough. Knead with additional flour until no longer sticky. voila! And since you’ve used all natural ingredients (the watercolor paint could be questionable), when the stuff gets all dry and crumbly and the kids have lost interest, there’s a whole new round of fun when you feed it to your chickens!
