JDaniel and I tried to create some activities we could do with the younger generation of cousins while the older family members chatted after meals. One of the things we made was scented Christmas playdough.
We used Easy No Cook Jello Playdough recipe from Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas to create our playdough. The red playdough was made with cherry jello and the green playdough was created using Duncan Hines Frosting Creations- Mint Chocolate in place of jello.
We had to keep adding flour to each of the mixture until the level of stickiness went down. I think if I just stayed with the recipe I would have been fine.
The room was a little dark in the area we played in. The picture above of JDaniel creating a smile face in playdough came out a little dark,
They told me their grandmother (my sister in law) makes them playdough too. They also mentioned hers had been a little sticky too. Apparently we are sticky playdough makers in my family.
We did have a great time taking time to play while the big people got caught up and told stories of long ago.
