Recipe by Shannon Anderson
This is my mom's playdough recipe that she originally got from an old friend. My mom is the one that started adding the different extracts to the playdough to make such wonderful smelling playdough. My kids and I both love this recipe! It makes a very smooth playdough that will last a very long time. Enjoy!

I made some of this for the kids during a time when everyone was in town for a funeral. Everyone was so down and this really helped perk the kids up and let them enjoy themselves for a few hours. I wish I still had the pictures of the wonderful creations they made. We discovered that one little girl was really quite the artist. She discovered a talent she didn't know she had. It was great!
