Let me first of all preface this by saying that not every day of quarantine has been like this morning. Some days we get crafty and have little projects but mostly I’ve been perfectly ok with the kids having screen time. (Hey whatever works right?) This morning though I was feeling all “pinteresty” and we made homemade edible playdough.

I’m sharing my recipe below on how to make homemade edible playdough using ingredients we already had on hand.
