Tip of the Day March 14

If your toddler is getting too excited in the kitchen, give her some edible play dough to cut. She can make dinner for you while you finish the family meal.

Peanut Butter Play Dough
2 cups powdered milk
2 cups honey
2 cups peanut butter

Mix together

Colorful Play Dough
2 cups water
2 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup salt
1 tbsp cream of tartar
2 pkgs powdered, unsweetened flavored drink mixes
3 tbsp vegetable oil

Bring the water to a boil in a sauce pan; remove from heat and set aside.
Whisk together the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and soft drink mix in a large bowl; stir the vegetable oil into the flour mixture using a spoon, not a whisk. Pour the hot water into the bowl and continue stirring. When the dough is cool enough to handle, turn it onto a lightly-floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Store unused portions in refrigerator.
