This playdough is great fun to play with and it’s great fun to make it. My son was always very creative and enjoyed making things with a variety of materials when young. Playdough was an essential material for him, and now he has grown up to be an artist.

Sakt 1/2 cup
Cream Of Tartar 1 tablespoon *essential, do not omit
