Homemade No-Cook Playdough Recipe

Time for a fresh batch of playdough in our house! I think we'll make a couple new colors of the no-cook recipe this afternoon:

Have you tried DIY no-cook playdough? It's quick and easy. We especially like it because even young kids can do most of the mixing and making.

I just spent a few minutes browsing all of the wonderful posts on your page!  Such amazing projects!  I think that I might make wire sculptures with my kids tomorrow.  Glad to hear that you had a much needed break - we all need that sometimes.
