Playdough Keepsakes

This is a great way to capture your child's play.

by Craftbits (Shellie Wilson)

All you have to do is let your kids play with the dough and create something. Then you bake the creation to preserve it so you can look back on it for years to come.

What you need

3 1/2 cups of Flour
1 cup of Salt
1 1/4- 1 1/2 cups of Water
Variety of food coloring


Mix the dough ingredients together and set small amounts aside. Color them individually to give the children lots of colors to play with. Just knead the color into the dough.

Let your child play with it until they design something you consider worth treasuring.

Then once they are done simply stick it in the oven at 250 degrees for around 20 minutes or until it sounds hollow when you tap it.

Help protect it with an optional spray of a clear varnish.

And you have a wonderful keepsake!
