Anyone can see a throne would be your proper place..."
My latest Claire craft, an ode to one of my favorite Disney movies and one that Claire has watched Every. Single. Day. for the past 4 months.
It all started when I found this crown cookie cutter at Walmart for $1. Claire loves play dough and I think it's fun to make because I can add any colors and scents that I want. An idea was born! It took me a long time to collect everything in this kit... I just happened upon some things in stores and had to do some searching for the rest. But all in all, it was fairly cheap to put together.
I used my favorite play dough recipe, but I like to add the color to the liquid instead of kneading it in afterwards. While this results in more work, because you have to make one batch for each color, I find that adding it afterwards results in sticky dough. If you add it beforehand, you can add as much as you want to get a darker color, and just cook off the moisture to result in perfect dough. I halved the recipe and added 8 or 9 drops of lavender essential oil that I had in the cabinet. I also added some clear plastic glitter, maybe 2 tablespoons per batch.
