  1. Yay playdough! It's somewhat comforting to see all the ingredients and know that it actually is edible. Makes one of those habits of childhood seem less damaging.

  2. My mother used to make this for it! Glad I found your blog through cre8buzz. Have a good weekend!

  3. I saw some playdough at a craft fair during Christmas that smelled like fruit. I should have bought some, because that playdough smell will be in my house for YEARS to come!!


  4. I remember when my family and I made play-dough back when I was a kid... brings back lots of memories! I look forward to making play-dough with my daughter too but that'll be at least 3 1/2 years from now... due to the fact she won't be born till May!

  5. I think if you put gelatin powder into the playdough mix it gives it color and smell. Koolaid mix might work as well.

  6. Good recipe :)
    You can make some really great colours with this!
