Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Homemade Playdoh

Puddin Pop's teacher sent out a request for playdoh for the classroom.
We were happy to help.
Puddin Pop picked the colors and helped with the measuring.
We used this recipe last year for Preschool and it really stays soft much longer that the store bought stuff.
It is also made from ingredients around the house.

1 cup Flour
1 cup Water
1/2 cup Salt
1 Tbsp Oil
2 tsp Cream of Tartar
Food Coloring

Mix all ingredients together before putting over heat (I add the food coloring to water and then add in the rest).  Also make sure not to use hot water as it will make the flour clump.
Cook on Medium until a ball is formed stirring continuously. (about 5 minutes)
Remove from heat, let cool for 2 minutes.  Knead for 2 minutes then store in a plastic container. 
 Lasts up to 3 months when kept in container when not in use.
