My mother visited us in March and we wanted to do playdough for my son. But we wanted a recipe made in the microwave. I found this one on this site : It's really easy to do.

I love this rrecipe, I did this today with my 2 year old nephew and the prep took a little longer but everything dose when you have a 2 year-old in tow :) we put chocolate powder in it instead of food colouring worked a treat we also used hot water it cooked a lot quicker. Well definitely be my go to guide for play dough
