...planet earth playdough...

H wanted to wear his spiderman suit and make saltdough today. "Why not?" I said and we rolled up our sleeves, stuck out our tongues and got mixing.
I have a basic, chuck it in a bowl without much measuring recipe which is:
1 cup of salt
2 cups of flour
lukewarm water
food colouring, including turmeric for yellow.

H wanted a ball each of yellow, green and blue.
Then he pounced on them and mashed the three balls together, disappearing into a 3 year old boy's fantasy world of a dinosaur's tea party.
"Look Mum!" said H after a quiet moment "urff! Where we live."
Blimey. He was right. There in his hand was a playdough blob that looked uncannily like planet Earth.
I'm ashamed to say that I was a sad mother and leapt up, grabbed the dough and took many pictures before handing it back to become squashed into a dinosaur cake once more.

Here's the result. Isn't it weird?
