We recently moved into a house that was still under renovation. Most of our belongings were in storage for months while we waited for our home to be move in ready. While unpacking our kitchen, I noticed that a lot of our food was getting close to their expiration. I had open containers of flour & oats that I wanted to use up, so this morning I made a couple of dozen oatmeal mini muffins. They were a big hit by the way. I still had a little bit more flour & oats left, so we tried our hand at oatmeal play dough.
2 cup of oats
2 cup of flour
1 cup of water
1-2 tbsp honey
Food coloring optional
Add the water to the oats and add the honey. Stir well. Mix in the flour & then knead with your hands. It may seem like a lot of flour, but keep kneading well and it will absorb. (Add extra water a tbsp at a time if needed until you reach your desired consistency)
I loved the texture of this play dough. It was very firm & moldable. My daughter of course wanted to dive right in.
I was so excited about how well it molded. I asked Mai what we should make. She said that she wanted to make a pyramid. We sliced the play dough into rectangular pieces and constructed our own pyramid.
As if the play dough wasn’t messy enough, mommy added another element of mess & made icing to bind the pieces together.
This was a great activity for both of us. While Mai constructed her towers & googly eye cookies, mommy made a little something of her own too.
