Homemade Play Dough Recipe

The other day I dropped my babes off at one of my dearest friend’s house for a little play date (while I ran to my barre class). Being the super-mom that she is, she naturally had planned for (and was already prepped for) my little darlings to make homemade play dough with her and her youngest daughter. And, I have got to tell you, this play dough recipe is awesome! My babes are obsessed…more obsessed with this play dough than any other kind they’ve tried (and, we’ve tried a lot of them)! So, I asked my friend to share her recipe with me, and I am happy to share it with you as well!
