  • Tiffany Hales

    Is it 1/2 cup of salt?

  • Tiffany Hales

    I made this recipe exactly as stated. It turned out awesome except for 1 thing. Using the 1/2 cup of salt as stated made it so salty that it was disgusting. Am going to try it with 1/2 cup of sugar instead.

    Hi there,
    Is there a recipe for edible playdough that uses the microwave? I want to make this with some students and don’t have access to a stove.
