Play Dough

Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies out there!

I think part of having a healthy family is enjoying fun things together. I have fond memories growing up of playing with play dough. We hardly ever had the store-bought kind. My Mom would make this recipe and it was great - kept us entertained for hours. I made some the other day and my kids and I had a blast playing with it. The possibilities are limitless with play dough. It's non-toxic so that's good too. This is a fun recipe to make when you need something a little different to do with the kids.

Combine all ingredients in medium saucepan. Stir well. Cook over medium heat until pulls away from sides of pan, stirring constantly. Cool. Store in air-tight container in refrigerator. Will keep for several weeks if sealed well.

I've used a variation of this recipe before, and I love how the play dough isn't grainy. A tip I heard is that you can add a package of unsweetened Kool-Aid powder to the recipe to give it a sweet smell.
