Making playdough is something I love to do. Home-made playdough keeps better, is easier to wash out of carpet, and is better for your child. It also allows you to experiment with pleasing scents and natural colours.
Cinnamon makes a lovely light brown and is gently scented. Add ground ginger and you have Gingerbread playdough!
