When my children were smaller (about playdough size), they loved it, (they liked to eat it), I know, weird. I know the container said it was supposed to be safe to eat, but, being a mother, I wasnt sure. After a short period of time they outgrew eating playdough. (Thank God, I thought I was a terrible mother)! Anyway, I run across this recipe in our local newspaper. Simple to make, taste wasnt bad and I knew what was in it, and it would keep for several months, in airtight container. So, for all mothers with young children, if any are interested, try these, recipe #1 and recipe #2.
