Winter Day Activities...

what do you do with 3 sick kids on a day that is too feral to step foot outside?

go crazy first
then find a recipe for microwave playdough!
i googled only to find the recipe on eb anyway lol thanks to jez

Microwave Playdough
2 cups plain flour
2 cups water
1 cup salt
2 tspn cream of tartar
1 tbsp oil
food colouring

  1. mix all ingredients. microwave on high 2 minutes then stir
  2. microwave 1 further minute then stir again. microwave 1 further minute then remove, in total 4 minutes *
  3. allow to cool, knead well and store in an air tight container **
  4. if you need more than one batch it's better to make them one by one
* i had to do an extra 30 secs as my mw is not very powerful
** i let it cool only enough to be touched - it's so cold here today it was nice to use warm playdough!

I don't have kids but saw it browsing thru.
