There are many things young kids love to do to pass the time, but it can be said that helping out in the kitchen at home and playing with play dough are right up there on their list of fun stuff to do.
I've made my fair share of play dough over the years for my children. It's a bit of a right of passage on the parenting journey. I've also bought plenty of the stuff too. While it's cheap to buy, nothing feels quite the same as real homemade dough, plus your kids think you're amazingly clever when you do it yourself!
Homemade play dough is soft, inexpensive, abundant and you can choose your own colours, plus it's a whole lot of fun to prepare. There are many recipes out there for messy stove-top versions and fiddly microwave recipes, but did you know there's also a version of play dough that requires no cooking at all?
