This "Muddy" Playdough recipe goes perfect with the Mud Puddles and Bubbles Play Plan. Find it here. It can also be used for a "Hot Chocolate" themed play dough play. And.... it smells great!
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa or hot chocolate powder. (different hot chocolates have different scents. Mint smell is popular with my kids)
2 cups BOILING water
1 cup salt
2 TBSP cream of tartar ( find it in the baking aisle in a small box)
2 TBSP Baby oil (you can use cooking oil but baby oil is nicer)
Mix all if the ingredients together. Once it cools a bit, knead it all together until smooth. You may need to add sprinklings of flour to oil to get the right texture as you knead.
Have fun with your brown playdough!
