Why wait to try this fun project when it's as easy as 1-2-3?

In the 1930s, Play-Doh was first made in Cincinnati as a wallpaper cleaner, but when children in classrooms began to use it as modeling clay, it was marketed to schools in the mid-1950s. Who knew that such an iconic children's toy came from such odd origins? Now you can make your own homemade playdough in your kitchen with just two ingredients.

The smell of playdough is something that children will never forget, and one sniff will send us back to days sitting at a kid-sized table making fake food and cities out of the pliable dough. To mark its fifieth anniversary, a fragrance library created a limited-edition fragrance inspired by the smell of playdough. It is a whimsical reminder of early childhood and the fun we would have mashing the dough between our little fingers.

Almost everyone has played with this popular modeling clay, because it's been around for so long and has reached people on an international level. So, we all know how easily it dries out when it gets older or is left out of its containers. You won't ever worry about your playdough drying out again when you learn how to make homemade playdough. You can keep the ingredients on hand so you will always be prepared when your children want to play.
