I made this recipe about five weeks ago and waited to see how well the mixture lasted. As long as it is kept in a covered container I put it in a Gladware plastic container) it seems to be lasting a long time. I used a KitchenAid stand up mixer fitted with a dough hook to prep the dough/doh and the recipe was cut in half. Be warned that the dough leaves a slightly oily residue on any surface that it comes in contact with: fabric and furniture, for example. Furthermore, because the play dough contains food dye, there is the chance of surface stains. ~Tasty~ plays with the dough on her child-sized plastic table and clean up is easy. It is is much more pliable (no crumbles!) than its commercial counterpart which means it is easier to mold. Put out some (seasonal) cookie cutters, a small child-size rolling pin, etc. and watch them be easily entertained. Inexpensive, simple and quick to make. Thank you!
I made a half batch for my GS and we had fun! Thank you Chef floWer for sharing.
My daughter and I had loads of fun with this! This made lots so we were able to make bunches of colors. Thanks for the no cooking method!
