Yesterday, S and I were cooking in the kitchen.  Hubby came in to see what we might be cooking up for dinner… sorry honey but we’re making play-dough instead of dinner tonight.  (Dinner was made shortly after this.)

I wanted to make natural play-dough so we had to find something that would make a nice colored dye. Being that a lot of curry is cooked in this house it’s no surprise that we had turmeric on hand.  That orange-yellow seemed like a great option for the dye color.

Color Dye Recipe

Put two teaspoons of turmeric in a pan with a cup of water. Bring to the boil then gently simmer on stove for 20 minutes.

Today we (er, I) made SpongeBob, Patrick, and Gary.

She’s already requested purple for the next batch.  Guess I need to get some blueberries.
