Super Easy Homemade Playdough

Last week I made playdough for my son.  I used the recipe from the book The Toddlers Busy Book: 365 Creative Games and Activities to Keep Your 1 1/2- to 3-Year-Old Busy by Trish Kuffner, which by the way is a great book.  My son first ate some then played with it a little.  Thankfully it is made of edible ingredients.  You can also store this in the refrigerator.  I kept mine in for about three days and it was still great.  Here is the easy recipe.

Homemade Oatmeal Playdough

1 part flour
1 part water
2 parts oatmeal

Mix well.  That's it!  Very simple.

I used half a cup of flour, half a cup of water, and one cup of oatmeal.  I wanted to see what it was like before making a big batch.  It turned out nice and was quick and easy to make.  You could probably use food coloring if you want to add color to it.  I might do that next time.
