Play dough is always so fun! It is good for fine motor skills for the little ones and great for creativity for all of them! I do find that with boys, if not watched carefully, pieces of flying playdough will arrive in other rooms of the house! Usuall aiming at a moving target!
Here is a great recipe we use to make our own Playdough:
2 Cups flour
2 Cups salt
2T. cream of tarter
2 Cups water
*Cook until mixture leaves side of pan. Dump into heavy plastic Ziploc bad. Knead. (Let children do this part, they love it!)
