Day 2 - Kids in the Kitchen - Craft Time - Homemade Play Dough  
Mix it and stir it and knead it all up! 
Add color and play play play! Store in air tight container and play some more!

Ideas of things to make with play dough: 
1. Animals - easy shapes like circles, ovals and squares make lots of animals 
2. Play Food- use different colors to make pizza's, fruits, and veggies and play restaurant 
3. Vehicles - cars, trucks, and boats make for hours of fun 
4. Architecture - basic shapes can become Eiffel towers, Empire State Buildings, or your house
5. Letters - what kind of homeschool teacher would I be if I left this out?

I have homemade play dough on our bucket list too. I only wish our kitchen was bigger to fit all the kiddos.

yes, I do love that we have a center island to gather around- it really does become the heart of the home ;) we also like to gather around a table or I put down a table cloth on the floor to play

Ha! Jennifer - I thought at first that I needed to make him take it out for pictures and then decided to just keep it real ;)

We love making homemade play dough. We have used it often to make different projects throughout the year. The kids love being able to measure the ingredients and mix it up!
