Here’s a recipe for a squishy dough to play with. We like it because you can tailor the color combinations to the kids’ whims-du-jour.

My Mom used to make this for us!!! I hated it because I wanted REAL Play Dough not homemade. God, I’m so glad I didn’t have to raise me.
🙂 i’m surprised the kids aren’t demanding customized colors. i probably ought to learn my additive color charts just so i can come up with the fairy-friendly shades of pink and purple.
For coloring, we use washable hand paint (it doesn’t stain like food coloring does).
