Play Dough

Good morning!

Have I told you that I love my new job?! 🙂 It just keeps getting better!  Yesterday we made play dough. 🙂 A beautiful shade of turquoise blue play dough. Like the Caribbean. Two cups of flour, 1/2 cup of salt, 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar, 2 tablespoons of oil. Stir in 1.5 cups of boiling water with a dash or two of food coloring. (We chose blue.) Mix. Knead. And voila! Play dough! 4 minutes to make. Good to go for 6 months shelf life.


Play dough is one of the best mediums for sensory play. It’s soft consistency is so inviting to the sense of touch. Who can resist squishing it between their fingers?

My children are grown. Their play dough days are behind them. No more preschool or Sunday school or vacation bible school or elementary school classrooms to make it for any more. But I have grandchildren!  No more cooking it on the stove or in the microwave.  Now it’s four minute play dough made with boiling water. It’s made in haste. Just like the unleavened bread of the bible. No time to let the bread rise while escaping the bondage of Egypt.

I hope and pray that if anything is holding you bondage, you too, will rely on God to escape it. Do so in haste.  Just like the four minute play dough recipe or leavened bread. Just like the Israelites fleeing Egypt, God will go before you to lead and protect you. He will always be there with and for you.

I hope and pray too that you may remember the day you came out of bondage, the day you believed Christ to be your personal savior, all the days of your life.

3You shall eat no leavened bread with it; seven days you shall eat unleavened bread with it, that is, the bread of affliction (for you came out of the land of Egypt in haste), that you may remember the day in which you came out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.
Deuteronomy 16:3

Love and laughter,
