This recipe has been a favorite in our home for years now. My children's kindergarten teacher gave this to me, and we haven't bought any store bought since. It is so soft!! And it keeps really well! It is super easy to make as well. My 3 year old son loves to use it outside on the patio to make tractor and little truck tire tracks in with his toy as you can see from the picture..lol. He had to take a picture of his work. :-)

If it dries out a bit after some play, I put it in the container with a little bit of water and leave overnight. In the morning, it is soft again.
