    Beaner in Washington's Note:

    I know that there are a lot of young moms out there that can use this recipe. It is just like the real play dough and a lot less $. The big plus is when its gets crumby and icky you can throw it away and make more. My kids are both in their 20's and I used this when they were little. Now I have grandchildren and I will make it for them!

      This worked out great in a pinch. I ended up watching my neighbours kids for a few hours and this kept them busy and happily chattering away. I was really glad to see it didn't include cream of tartar or alum as I don't keep either on hand.

      This play dough was so easy to make. It's the first I've ever made so I really don't have anything to compare it to. It was a wee bit dry so I added a little splash of water. I made half a batch and poked a little hole in the middle of the ball and filled w/ food coloring and let my 7yr old mix it in. Thanks!

      Great, non-cooked playdough. Its a bit gritty at first - but as the kids played with it, it became smoother. I did need to add almost 1/8-1/4 more water & a bit more oil. But we live in AZ where it is currently 100* and our humidity is in the teens = hot & dry.
