  1. love to make playdough for the kids and the different holidays and seasons are just the perfect times to do it

  2. What a great idea! We will definitely have to try this out!

  3. I LOVE this!!! I'm so going to try this, but we've been banned from playdough. I think it may have made hubby made when it came on to the carpet ... LOL. But so making it this summer for Caden's party, I bet the kids would love it and we can send it home as gifts :).

    I hope you make the pot roast and love it :)

  4. cool! I will definitely try this with Joleigh.

  5. The chocolate one looks tasty--I mean fun! Does the Koolaid one get color everywhere? I seem to have to use Comet to scrub it off my countertops whenever it get spilled. Wondering how playdough would be.

  6. I will have to try a couple of these recipes. I have 1 or 2 playdough recipes, but I know at least one of them has to be cooked.

    I like the idea of not cooking it. Anytime I can get out of cooking, that works for me. :)

  7. Your playdough recipes sound wonderful! I think I might be tempted to eat the chocolate and kool-aid versions :o!!
