We ran out of Play-Doh! The baby thought I was the worst Mom ever! Ok, so she didn't say that, but I could tell in her watery eyes, she wasn't happy. The Play-Doh "emergency" did not render me to jump in the car with all 5 kids to go to the store, so I hopped onto my Pintrest and found this recipe. It worked well, and best thing, each kid can make a couple of clumps, choose their own colors and THROW IT AWAY when they are done. No reusing, and germ infestations, not even a huge mess to clean up. I made them keep it on wax paper to reduce the mess.
Thanks fellow SAHM Erika for your ideas! Here's the link for homemade play-doh.
