homemade blue playdough for Autism Awareness

Pin It

we desperately needed to make another batch of homemade playdough as our brown-mud playdough and our pink strawberry playdough had seen their last days. 

since it's Austism Awareness Month, we made blue playdough.  if you'd like more information on what you can do to spread awareness and support autism research, go to the Light it Up Blue site.

Bear wanted to do it all by himself.  so i let him do as much as he could alone. 
Bear crossed the ingredients off as we added them.
and yes, the dumptruck acted as a measuring tool.
Bear was able to decide how much blue to add.
then he mixed it all up!

here's the recipe we used in a cute little, pinnable image just for you!

we've used this recipe from the Nurture Store since we saw it in their playdough cupcake post.  they also have a free playdough ebook available here

Love the blue playdough for autism. We use a very similar recipe, it has a little less salt though.
