I used to make this all the time for my kids when they were little. The best part about it is you really dont have to worry about it getting in the carpet. Just let it dry and vacuum it up! Pefect for a cold day when you want to stay in but your kids need entertaining! My kids are older now, but I'm saving this recipe for my future grandchildren!
