For a Nauseatingly Good Time, Call Me

23rd March 2010

My children LOVE PlayDoh. They go through a ton of it in one sitting. See all the empty containers above? Yup, it only took one hour to “run out” of PlayDoh. I on the other hand, hate PlayDoh.I cannot stand PlayDoh, but I have a good reason. It literally makes me physically nauseous to be around it. But, I suffer through it because the little people go ape shit over PlayDoh. Yes, motherhood is pain.

Ironically, I’m the mom responsible for making “playdough” for my son’s class. It is SUPER easy, the kid’s totally get involved and have fun in the process. Better yet, no nausea for me. Here’s the recipe:

1. Mix 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 1/4 cup cream of tartar in a pot.

2. Add 2 cups water, 1/4 cup cooking oil, food colouring

3. Mix Well.

4. Cook over medium heat, stirring until thick.

5. Knead a few times.

6. Store in an airtight container.


Easy Peasy. Mommy ain’t queasy.
