No-Cook Playdough

I never realized how difficult it can be to entertain a 3-year old for an extended period of time until yesterday. Apparently coloring on computer paper with a Bic pen and a highlighter is not a toddler’s idea of a good time. Who knew? I was frantically texting my best friend asking for quick craft ideas and she suggested making Playdough. GENIUS! Not only did the little guy enjoy helping in the kitchen, the dough kept him occupied for a few hours.
