I like to add peppermint oil or flavoring to my homemade playdough. It makes the room smell so nice and hands, too.
These two recipes I don't make for school but make them when I am babysitting grandchildren. Thought I would share them since we were on the subject of play dough.
Tootsie Roll Play Dough:
1/2 c. white Karo syrup
Mix the above in a mixing bowl. Add 1 box of powdered sugar and 3/4 c. powdered milk. Knead all ingredients together on waxed paper. To keep dough from sticking, sprinkle wax paper and hands with powdered sugar. It is messy but my grandkids love it.
Edible Play Dough:
1 c. peanut butter 1 c. corn syrup
1 1/4 c. powdered sugar 1 1/2 c. dried milk
Knead ingredients together until the dough is the consistency of modeling clay. Make shapes or letters with it and let it dry. Store let overs in plastic. Lick your fingers after you are done. Shapes and letters are edible. This is another favorite of my grandchildren.
