This preschool playdough is a recipe but it cannot be eaten! However, it is a very fun cooking project to make with your preschooler – or older kids! You can store this in freezer bags and keep it in the fridge or at room temperature – it should last for a long time.
This preschool playdough recipe is straight from my 3rd daughter’s classroom when she was in preschool and she is 10 now – proven success.
Today, Noelle and her friend made a beautiful batch of lime green preschool playdough for Keegan. Seriously, you can’t get fourth graders any more awesome than these two!
