  • Even though it makes for a longer process and a lot more clean up, let the little ones do the measuring and mixing.  They learn so much from helping in the kitchen, and it’s really fun for them. Keep mixing until most of the lumps are gone.

  • Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously until it thickens into a ball of dough.  This step does take a little while.  Just keep stirring, you’ll know it’s ready when won’t be able to stir anymore.

  • Once it is cool (at least 20-30 minutes) let the little ones knead it, adding in flour until it is no longer sticky (about 1/2 cup).  At this point, you can add in extra food coloring to make the colors more vibrant, or even add glitter.

  • This recipe makes a lot of play dough.  You could easily half the recipe, and there would still be plenty to play with.

  • When you are finished playing, store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.  It will keep for at least a few weeks in the refrigerator, with daily use.  If at any time it starts to be a little sticky, just add more flour.
