Microwave Bisquick Playdoh

Here's another fun thing to do by Ms. Shannon at Teaching Tinytots.

To make microwave Bisquick playdoh, you'll need:
  1. 2 cups Bisquick
  2. 1 cup salt
  3. 2 cups water
  4. 1 TBSP cream of tartar or alum
  5. 1 TBSP oil
  6. food coloring or kool aid, or add cocoa, peppermint, pumpkin spice, or whatever strikes your fancy, too!
Pour ALL into a MICROWAVE safe bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Stop and scrape and stir the bowl.

Microwave for another 3 mins scrape and stir.

It should be ready for kneading now; if not, cook for another minute or so!

This is the closest I can get to real playdoh! Can't get that great fresh playdoh smell, though! Did you know they did a survey and that is the most recognized scent that brings back fond memories?

It's good with vanilla too ... almost makes it more pliable *probably in my imagination* - at the moment it's lasting a fortnight in the nursery if I add vanilla.
