last summer, i made my first homemade playdough for avery. she played with it a few times before i found this recipe.
combine ingredients in a bowl & stir until smooth. pour mixture in a pot & cook on medium high heat for about a minute. stir constantly & make sure it does not stick to the bottom. remove from the pot & cool in the counter. knead a few times until it is nice & soft.
this is the basic recipe & can be doubled or tripled. for more colors, divide the mixture before adding the mixade (or food coloring). then cook individually.
the playdough is so soft...much softer than a stress ball. and it is actually therapeutic [for me]. =)
