In a previous post, I asked for ideas to keep my son occupied while I lie down on the couch being pregnant. One activity that was suggested to me to keep my 2 year old busy was playdough. My friend Lisa (who used to teach developmentally delayed pre-schoolers) was the source for this idea.
I knew that playdough was easy enough to make at home, so I searched online and found a quick and easy recipe requiring only flour, water and salt. One thing to be aware of is that you will be using a lot of salt, so be sure you have plenty on hand.
It is very sticky, so you might want to add a little extra flour to lessen the sticky-factor.
