Play Dough

















Today I was inspired by Joyfully Becca to attempt making play dough for my kids.  Anna has never been able to play with play dough because the regular store bought play dough contains wheat.  In it's place, we would let her play with Moon Dough, but real play dough looked so fun, if I could just pull it off.  I tried making Becca's version, but the gluten free flour I use did not work well.  I think the xanthan gum in my flour mix might have contributed to the sticky mess.  But now I was on a mission, so I googled gluten free play dough and found this recipe.  My son, Noah, is allergic to food coloring so we used some natural food colorings(www.indiatree.com) found at Whole Foods.  It worked!!! Everyone got in on the fun.  Thanks for the inspiration and motivation Becca!


Until I found this recipe online, I was not aware that there are actually Gluten Free Play Dough's available online.  So if you don't want to tackle making it in your kitchen, you can still order some from these sites.
