Play dough is a fun, clay-like substance that kids love! It is very easy to make, and provides hours of fun!It can be expensive to buy at stores, but it’s very easy and costs nothing to make it at home!
The only materials you will need are:
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
1 cup flour
food dye (any color, be creative!)
newspaper to cover the surface you are working onIt only takes about 10 minutes to make

Set Up
Find a good work space (we used the floor) and cover it with newspaper. also, find a medium sized bowl for mixing.

Add the Ingredients
Measure out 1 cup of four, and pour it into the bowl. then, measure out 1/2 cup of salt, and add that to the bowl, too. lastly, fill the measuring cup with 1/2 cup of water and pour it into the mixing bowl.

Mix it!
take a spoon – any spoon will do; and use it to mix up the ingredients. Mix it until it’s mushy and it’s neither watery nor flour – y.

Color it!
Add a few drops of food dye to the mush. then pick it up and start kneading it. this is easy, just play around with it. if desired, add more food dye to improve color.

You’re finished! if it’s a little sticky, knead a tiny bit of flour into it. use your imagination! you can make whatever you’d like!  Try making the Olympic rings, a medal for your family, or your favourite Olympic athlete!

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc.

My business story started a way back in 2001…

…after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions.

The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources.

The Parentguide.ca website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me.

I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do!

I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
