A Mama Report Feature: Homemade Kool-Aid Playdough

This playdough recipe has been a staple in our household for years.  My two youngest sons play with this homemade toy almost EVERY SINGLE DAY.  No joke.  When the playdough finally goes bad they beg me to make a new set.  They love picking out their preferred flavor.  I can't complain as it smells so good! Get the scoop on this awesome recipe via Kathy of A Mom's Impression!

Prime Time International’s HydroBlaster Max Review & Giveaway
