D is for Dough!

I am so excited to be part of an amazing group of bloggers that are participating in 31 Days of ABCs. We have all chosen a letter to write about, and mine is D!

D is for Daddy, dog, dinosaur, duck, doll, drum, dump truck, diaper and many more! But right now we’re playing with a lot of play dough.

To celebrate “D is for Dough” I made three new types of dough for my son: Orange, Lemon and Banana! I used my basic recipe (here) but made three batches. I added one teaspoon of extract (lemon, banana and orange) for each batch of dough, then added red and yellow food colouring to get the desired colour.

F decided to add straws to this dough. The banana dough was his favourite!
