    3 hours of my life I'll never get back. This was the stickiest and worst recipe for play dough I've ever used . It took so long trying to get right that by the time I finally got somewhere there was so much mess and the kids had totally lost patience . Never again . Just sticking to the resize from the cream of Tatar container feom
