Plastilina Primavera

We have varios tarros of Play Dough in our house, but that never takes away from the delight in making our own Plastilina Casera. 

We used our Plastilina Primavera to make Esculturas Primaveras which we wrote about on SpanglishBaby.  Click here to read about how to make your own Botero Inspired Esculturas Primaveras.

We usually make our Plastilina seasonal.  In the fall, we made Plastilina with an aroma of cloves and cinnamon with a speckled brown color.  Since it is Abril, we used an algodón dulce flavoring which gave our plastilina a deli aroma and a sharp aqua pastel.  

To make Plastilina Primavera, you will need the following ingredientes:

 Plastilina Primavera

¾ Cup Boiling Water
1 Cup Flour
½ Cup Salt
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar
(For our Plastilina Primavera, we added Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Flavor Mix.  I used the entire envelop of 3 gramos, but I recommend only using half the envelop.)

Mix dry ingredientes together first. My Sous Chef assisted. 

Add the liquids.  Stir together in a large bowl.

Stir together until the masa forms a ball. Add flour as needed to decrease stickiness and voila--¡Plastilina Primavera!

Making Plastilina Casera is a fun activity in which your whole familia can participate….it is really difícil for anyone to resist playing with it!  Once the dimensions of color and aroma are added…well…I would say, Plastilina Primavera is addictve!

Just a reminder to check out further actividades to create with your Plastilina Primavera.   Click here to read about how to make your own Botero Inspired Esculturas Primaveras.
