I am cramming to make my last minute presents for family and neighbors this morning. Earlier, my kids were getting restless, but I needed them to busy with a wholesome non-tv activity for just a bit longer. I pulled out the play-do bin and found only a small container of play-do. So, I quickly made a batch of homemade play dough. It is so fluffy and wonderful that I thought I'd share the recipe. It's from Cookin' with the Crazylady! (one of my favorite cook books) and it is so easy.
