  1. This is probably not a playdough recipe I would eat, there are better tasting ones on our site 🙂

  2. I would discourage kids from eating this! Most probably wouldn’t want to do more than taste it but, if they did actually eat it, they would probably vomit, because of the high salt content. Just to get an idea, if you were baking some kind of bread with flour, you probably wouldn’t use more than one teaspoon of salt to two cups of flour. This recipe calls for a cup of salt, or 48 teaspoons!

  3. Definitely not meant for eating! Uk Guidelines state that it’s not recommended for under 5s have any salt in their diet at all!

    1. I would think so, but I honestly haven’t tried. Please let us know if you give it a go.

      1. I know both of my boys would enjoy doing something like this. They love to caetre especially when they can make it look however they want too.
