2. Cook over medium low heat, stirring intermittently, until the dough comes away from the edges of the pan and becomes thick so it is difficult to move the spoon. Remove from heat.
3. Let play-dough cool in the pan until it can be handled.
4. Turn play-dough out on counter or on wax paper and knead 3 – 4 times.
5. Play! Store in an air tight container.
Decorations for the table can be alot of fun. Use a hollow pumpkin and fill it with candy corn or any other candy. For gift bags, take brown sacks, a pumpkin stamp, or stickers, and let the children decorate their own bags. Then fill them with treats.
Remember, don’t overload the toddlers with activities at a party or it looses it’s fun. 1 or 2 things is all they need.
