Kids love playdough, but parents know it all ends up one of two places: 1) Dried out and caked on the playroom floor or 2) gobbled up before you can grab it away. Instead of spending more money on new dough (or worrying about what they're ingesting) make your own non-smelly, completely safe kind with these 3 easy steps we adapted from canida's recipe. Have your kids help!




What You’ll Need

  • ½ cup salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup flour
  • food coloring
  • glitter
  • large bowl
  • newspaper
  • spoon
  • rubber gloves (optional)
