Softest Homemade Playdough

First of all, if you have never made playdough at home, YOU NEED TOO!  It is so simple and the homemade stuff is so much softer and lasts longer than the little cans you buy at the store.  This recipe for playdough is the the softest homemade playdough.  We have tried a couple different recipes and this one is our favorite.

This is also a great activity to do with your kids, perfect lesson for homeschooling.  They get to measure everything, help make the playdough, and feel accomplished after they made their own playdough.  How cool is that?
