y daughter loves playing with dough. Whenever i work with dough recipe, she would come and ask to join along. Usually I would give her a ball of dough to play with and she could play throughout my whole baking time. This gives me an idea to make her some homemade sensory playdough from edible ingredients.
After googling for a good half an hour, I decided to give this Martha Stewart playdough recipe a try. Because I am a baker myself, I know that a cooked dough is definitely a better choice from an uncooked dough. They are much more softer and pliable than the latter.
And true enough, this playdough is very smooth, soft and pliable. For smelling senses, I've added a few drops of different artificial flavours for each colors. My daughter loves them and she can named the smell for each colors without me telling her. Good job, baby!
After playing for 2 hours, the playdough still remained soft and pliable. To further test the suppleness of this playdough, I've left a ball of dough overnight on the counter without covering it. When I checked on it the next morning, there was a thin crust formed on the surface of the playdough. But once I knead it, the heat from my kneading seemed to have melt the crust into the soft dough. The end result is the playdough still remained soft and pliable as it was yesterday. I am very happy with this playdough recipe. Definitely the BEST playdough I've ever played!
