Ghost factory

A box of 100 count cookie cutters was probably one of the best purchases ever. They are quite entertaining. Not only they work for cookies, they also work for pancakes, sandwiches, and even playdough!

Here is J making "ghost factory" with home-made playdough* and a ghost shape cookie cutter (yes, it's still out in this season). I showed him how to make a face (i.e. 3 dots) with the back of plastic fork. He's got the idea! So, he made one after another. It kept him busy for a good hour. He was very proud and asked me to take a picture, and here it is! Good job, J!

*Playdough recipe

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
food coloring

Mix flour, salt and oil, and slowly add the water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until dough becomes stiff. Turn out onto wax paper and let cool. Knead the playdough with your hands until of proper consistency. Use as is, or divide into balls and add a few drops of food coloring. After use, place in a plastic bag and keep refrigerated.
