Today I learned that to make playdough, you have to cook it. I remember making playdough as a kid but I thought we just assembled ingredients – I don’t remember it being a stovetop activity. But all the recipes I found online said to heat it up. I used the Nature’s Playdough recipe but with no beet juice or food colouring on-hand, I coloured one lump with turmeric and one with paprika. Mmmm… spicy playdough.
Akka has been using it to make birthday cakes. Apparently Malli and I are both turning 2. She is turning 13. Malli wasn’t into the playdough so much. Instead, he went around the house spitting on things and then proudly declaring them “all wet”.
