I want to be a crafty mom. But sometimes the thought of all that mess makes me want to crawl into the fetal position behind my faithful Dyson and pray someone else will come clean up.

But, once Kate gets tired of helping me fold laundry and rearrange the pantry, I need to come up with something, anything to keep her occupied for at least five minutes.

When Kate’s preschool sent home a homemade playdough recipe, I figured I’d give it a try. I’m over at Mom it Forward today sharing the recipe and my experience.

Also? Do not confuse powdered sugar with flour. If you attempt to make this recipe with powdered sugar because you mistook it for flour, all you will end up with is sweet smelling water mixture. I think Kate’s preschool teachers decided I was their favorite mother when, on my day to bring in playdough, I confessed I needed another day because I accidently used powdered sugar rather than flour.

I swear, I have a Masters degree.
