With four boys, ages six and under, I consider myself expert in a few (just a few) things. Like, the art of making bathrooms smell unboyish (sorry to have to bring that subject up here, in such polite company), making four PB&J sandwiches in 30 seconds flat, breaking up impromptu wrestling matches, and making playdough.
We play with a lot of playdough around these parts, and although I initially questioned the appropriateness of posting this non-food recipe here on this food blog, I figured I couldn’t keep my secret for sanity hidden any longer.
Playdough keeps my kids happy and busy on many occasions while I fix dinner. And that fact alone makes me heart playdough in a big way.
This playdough recipe, made for the last 20 years by my Aunt Marilyn and the last six years by me, is wonderful in the fact that it isn’t as sticky and residual as other homemade playdough recipes I’ve made, which makes the clean-up even easier.
And do we even need to talk about how homemade playdough is seriously pennies cheaper than store-bought? Suffice it to say, not only will making this playdough save you money, but it just might win you mother-father -friend-sister-brother-aunt-uncle-babysitter-of-the-year-award.
