I figured it was high time I finally shared this playdough recipe. We love our favorite oil based playdough recipe, which is great but it's not very great for molding and making things out of. So about a year ago (no really, a year ago).
I didn't really think much of it, until I realized about a month ago that we've had this playdough for a year and it was still very much playable and soft. A couple of the colors had crystallized on top, but those specific ones had been kept in not very airtight containers. The ones that were in rubbermaid containers were still soft just as when I made it a year ago. I tried a new recipe from Living Well Mom and loved it!
