My kids tend to go through a whole LOT of homemade playdough. Yours too? How about we use that to our advantage and have them make their own lunch? hehe...
Then let the kids play with it. The longer you play with it, the better the dough will be.
Still playing the dough. Mia liked the texture so much that she asked for more the next day, just for playing.
Set your noodle maker on a floury table. I got ours from Giant, cheaply at around rm30+. It is very simple to use and the kids can operate it on their own. We were pretty much wrestling each other ( even me!) to get a turn to use the noodle maker.
When we're done this is what you get. Beautiful homemade noodles. Dry it on a kitchen towel. You can use right fresh pasta right away or leave it to dry for a couple of hours, then keep it to use another day. It should keep for a week or two.
Freshly boiled pasta. Yum! It's a hit with the kids.
Oh, did I mention we go through a LOT of pasta too in this house?
