    This is my favorite playdoh / playclay recipe. Thank you for posting it because I misplaced the book and I need to make a new batch! I always colour it with a package of the no sugar added (the really cheap tiny packs with just the food colouring and flavour) of Koolaid added to the hot water). Its super easy to make and because it is mixed with hot water the salt dissolves so it is not crunchy like other non-cooked playdoh's (but without the bother of cooking!)
