Mason really wanted to make play dough, so we did. I used the cooked play dough recipe from Familylicious, and it turned out great. I think the key is mixing all of the dry ingredients together first, then adding the liquids and mixing them up, then heating everything. In the past I've tried to mix the dough while it's heating and that doesn't seem to work very well.
We only made a couple of batches because we ran out of salt. I used gel food coloring which is my new favorite thing. It takes so much less food coloring than the regular stuff and the colors turn out brighter.
I guess I was taking too many pictures because Mason was super irritated with me. I told him to just pretend I wasn't there. He said "Mom. You ARE there. I can see you. I'm not pretending."
