Homemade Cooked Playdough Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I need a break from chasing the kids all around the house. One handy trick I have found is sitting them at the kitchen table with Homemade Playdough. There are a couple different ways to make Homemade Playdough. You can cook it (like I did in this post) or Non-cooked Playdough (which I plan on making next week). I love how Homemade Playdough feels compared to store bought Play-Doh. The kids will play with it for hours; giving you Mom a break to do something like laundry.

When I started getting everything ready to make the Homemade Playdough I relized my husband took our camera to work with him today, so my photos are from my crappy phone. Maybe Sprint will see this post and want to send me a new awesome phone because these photos will not help their sales.
