Like my title??
Ya, it’s National Poetry Month…just showing off my poetry skills…you know.
Anywho, I wanted to let you in on the BEST play dough recipe evah!
It’s top secret (I got it out of Family Fun Mag years ago)…so don’t tell anyone!
But seriously, this stuff is the best!

Here’s what you need:
Stir dry ingredients together, and mix the oil and water in a separate bowl.

Combine in a saucepan, heat up (med. to low) and stir for about 10 minutes or until it’s super hard to stir.
