I went to a local play group with my toddler daughter, and we enjoyed playing with the (what I thought was commercial) play dough there. I wondered how they managed to afford such large quantities. The answer was - it was home made! It's a fantastic recipe, far better than any other I've tried. Hope you enjoy it.
