squishy pastels

Ever made something from scratch that you usually buy prepared, and then feel like an idiot that you didn't just make it before? That's how I felt when I made my nieces play dough for Easter:

The two batches took me half an hour, total, and all of the ingredients are regular pantry items (okay, I don't normally use white flour, but you know what I mean). The dough will last for about six months, and although I doubt it tastes very good, it is non-toxic.

I feel like making some for myself with essential oils. I could work stress out and moisturise my hands at the same time!
