Easy Homemade Play-dough

homemade play-dough recipe, 4 year old boy playing wiith homemade playdough, holding it in front of his eyes

When I was little my mom always made us homemade play-dough. She started making it again once Morris and my niece were old enough to play with it (and not eat it… although its totally edible, just very salty!) When Morris started school this year I signed up to be part of the play-dough club to make play-dough for his class. Having never tried to make it before myself I grabbed my mom’s recipe and made it with ease.
