Wheelie Car Playdough

We like to make all different colors of play dough here and think up new ways to use it! A fun idea I had was making a playdough road for the Wheelie Cars to drive on!

My daughter had a lot of fun making prints from the cars and their tires in the playdough as she helped them get across the road. All you'll need for this is a batch of black play dough. You can easily whip up your very own (kids love being apart of this process). 

Black Playdough/Wheelie Car Playdough Recipe:

- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of water
- 1/4 cup of salt
- 1 TBSP vegetable oil
- 1 TBSP lemon juice
- Black food coloring

Step 1:
Get our all the ingredients with your child and then put them all in a pot. Have your child stir them together until they are pretty will mixed.

Step 2:
Put the pot on the stove over medium heat, stirring CONSTANTLY with a wooden spoon. Once the playdough starts to form a ball, remove it from the heat.

Step 3:
I like to transfer the playdough to a bowl to allow it to cool for a minute while I wash the pot before the leftover playdough dries to it.

Step 4:
Knead the dough until it is no longer sticky.

Step 5: 
Play, play, play!

Step 6:
When you're finished playing store the playdough in an airtight container (we use Ziploc bags) until you're ready to play with it again.
