Mom's Bookshelf: The Homemade Play Dough Recipe Book

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Do your kids like playing with play dough? Mine love it. Store-bought play dough works great and there are many fun ways to play with it. But, if you've never tried homemade play dough, you're missing out on a whole lot of fun.

Homemade play dough is simple to make and the ingredients are easy to find. The texture is softer and smoother and if kept in a closed container, will last longer than the store bought kind. The possibilities for color, scent, and texture are endless. If you've ever wanted to give homemade play dough a try or just want some new ideas, The Homemade Play Dough Recipe Book is the book you need. Cathy James, the creator of NurtureStore, gives you the basic recipes plus 52 different variations and ways to play with your play dough. That's one idea a week - awesome!

The first idea we tried out was the play dough pizza parlor. My girls are always playing pretend pizza parlor and I thought they'd love having some play dough to add to the fun. I was right! They've been making pizza on a daily basis ever since I made the play dough. Cathy tells you how to make a scented play dough for the dough and red for the sauce. We kept a small amount plain to use for cheese. Cathy also gives suggestions for added elements to enhance your play even more.

A play dough pizza parlor is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many ideas we want to try. Some more of the ideas you will find in this e-book are: garden flower play dough, design a fish, birds and nests, outer space play dough, alphabet dough, and play dough tangrams. With 52 play dough ideas, you will never run out of fun!
