Homemade "GLUTEN FREE" play dough

Play dough is so much fun, what kid doesn't like to play with it?  When I was making the Magic Model Clay the other day instead of wrapping it up to cool down I let a batch sit out to see if it would work as play dough. Well it did.

After it cooled down the kids played with it and had a blast. It was the softest play dough and the great thing was it was made without flour so it's "Gluten Free".

I know there are a lot of recipes out there that call for flour to make homemade play dough so I was excited when this worked and as you can see we made several YUMMY smelling batches.

You can made Model Magic the same way just after cooling under a damp towel, mold to the shape you want and let it air dry. 

3 cups of baking soda
2 cup of corn starch
2 cups of water
Kool-aid or Duncan Hines frosting packets. (Both work the pink is bubble gum and the blue is cotton candy)
Food coloring works as well, but then you don't have a fruity smell.

Mix all the ingredients in a cooking pot, place heat on medium and stir til you have a dough. Only takes couple minutes. Kids can help but need to be supervised.

1. All the ingredients mixed together in pot
2. Thicken up
3. Looks like mash potatoes
4. Cooling
5. Playdough or Model Clay ready to play or mold
