I LOVE this homemade playdough recipe. It feels just like the real thing only tons cheaper! 2.5 c flour, 1/2 c salt, 1 T alum, 3 T oil, 2.5 c water. I've tried a lot of different recipes and this is by far my favorite. We made 3 different colors. This makes enough in one batch to fill 5 of these dollar tree small containers.
