    Be careful with Nutella and peanut butter play dough if you have students with nut allergies.

    This is an amazing resource for me to try out this summer! Looking forward to trying some or all of these with my girls! Thanks a million!

    I’m always in need of “Brown Colored” play dough as me & my Grandson are always making roads, bricks & logs for playtime. It’s really hard to find brown play dough in the stores! Any suggestions?

      Hi Alyce. I would use the chocolate play dough recipe above. Or use the ‘basic play dough’ recipe above and add a squirt of brown paint into the mixture. It sounds like you and your grandson have a fun time together! Cathy
