Toddler Playdough Fun {Nearly} Wordless Wednesday

My son and I whipped up a batch of some homemade playdough together for his sister. She's still at the stage where she puts things in her mouth so I wanted something that would be okay if she decided to taste-test.

There are lots of recipes for homemade playdough out there, some that are edible even.  I'm avoiding the edible recipes, even though they look fun, because I don't want her to get confused and think playdough is for eating. 

 I used Erika's easy less than 10 minute recipe from Musings of a Stay at Home Mom. (though I didn't use gel paste food coloring so the color was a bit muted)  It cost about $13 for all the ingredients, but it will make lots of batches of playdough.

I handed her a lump or two and let her explore.

And that she did.  She promptly put some in her mouth. Then took it out to look at what she just tasted.

And decided it wasn't worth trying that again.

 It kept her attention for a good half an hour!  Definitely a hit in my book!
