How to Make No-Cook Play Dough Easily

    • I totally stole this from HERE.  It's super easy to make, and is a fraction of the cost of the real stuff.  We've made this a few times, and it's great to know that it's 100% safe if it's's a little salty, though.  Have fun, and enjoy this recipe!

      Making your own play dough is not only fun, it saves you money, by using things you already have in your kitchen cabinets. The best thing about making your play dough the NO-COOK way is because it is safe and easy so your kids can get involved. This is a fun activity to with any child. Encourage them to get their hands dirty and have some fun with it. This is by far the easiest play dough recipe I have ever tried. This recipe will only make a small amount so you can increase your ingredients to make the desired amount. Play dough doesn't last long anyway so it is always best to make small batches and the good thing about this recipe - it only takes 5 minutes!
