Our Experience With This Edible Playdough Recipe

We didn’t – there was quite a cloud of cornstarch in the air.

Fun times!

Dusty kitchens are loved kitchens!  Our kitchen is rarely clean, but we love making memories together.

Boy, oh, boy!  That dust cloud and the slip it added to the floor is a fun memory.

Your kids will love playing with this delicate dough. Our dough was incredibly crumbly, we added some more olive oil to help the dough gel together.  Our kids didn’t mind the crumbs one bit – those crumbs were reserved for nibbling. This is definitely something we could do again with our Gluten-free friends and family.
