There’s something about play dough. I don’t care how old you are, if there is a mound of play dough sitting on a table, it’s hard to resist sinking your fingers into it! It’s so much fun!
My kids are past the traditional play dough loving age, but they still love for me to whip up a batch every once in awhile for an afternoon of sculpting fun!
There are a ton of play dough recipes out there, but this one is my favorite. It really is the best play dough recipe with bright and vibrant colors, a soft pliable feel and it and it smells SO GOOD– all thanks to my not so secret ingredient– Kool Aid!
