My Mom always made our play dough and every month or two made a big batch for Sunday School kids at church. I think it has a better consistancy than the store stuff.

This is gonna sound weird, but- does it smell the same? One of my absolute favorite smells is play doh, lol (the store bought kind) I know, weird. Childhood memories :D

The kind my mom made smelled salty beause it was made with lots of salt. Its funny you mention childhood memories associated with smell, we always got so excited when she made a new batch. It made the kitchen smell doughy and it was awesome when we got to play with it all warm and fresh.

I just made my first batch of homemade play dough yesterday, and it smells a little like the store bought, but not the same! I agree, that is a great childhood memory smell!

I'm totally hooked on the play doh. It's way better than the store bought stuff. It's softer and it takes FOREVER to dry out.

I've been using the basic play dough recipe she mentioned. The link she gives doesn't take you to the right place, so I had to do some searching to find what she was talking about. Here it is..
