This playdough is great! My 3 year old and my 12 year old both love it. We used Kool-Aid to color and scent some of the dough and food coloring in some. The batch makes a good size lump of dough, easily equal to 4 cans of Play-doh brand. Great fun for the whole family!!

Would have been good to have a temperature for this - mine got quite dry as I think I had the heat up too high! Found it easier to mix the colouring in with the water at the beginning.
