Celebrating Play doh Day at the Library !

National Play Doh Day is September 16th :

Play-Doh is a modeling compound used by young children for arts and crafts projects at home. The product was first manufactured in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, as a wallpaper cleaner in the 1930s. The product was reworked and marketed to Cincinnati schools in the mid-1950s.https://www.museumofplay.org/blog/play-stuff/2016/11/the-history-of-play-doh-good-clean-fun

Today’s Read a long book:

So I made a batch of this homemade dogh so the kids cpuld play along with the book: The Recipe-

Homemade Recipe :

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup salt
  • 4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil (coconut oil works too)
  • Stir together the flour, salt and cream of tartar in a large pot. Next add the water and oil. If you’re only making one color, stir in the the color now.
  • Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the dough has thickened and begins to form into a ball. Remove from heat and then place inside a bowl, gallon sized bag or onto wax paper.

If you’re adding colors after, divide the dough into balls (for how many colors you want) and then add the dough into the quart sized bags. Start with about 5 drops of color and add more to brighten it. Knead the dough, while inside the bag so it doesn’t stain your hands. Once it’s all mixed together, you’re ready to PLAY.
  • Store the play dough inside the bags to keep soft. If stored properly it will keep soft for up to 3 months

Have a great Tuesday and pick up a library card at your local library….. Lisa
