Simple Gluten-Free Playdoh Recipe

One of the traditional fun games kids play with both at home and in the school classroom is PlayDoh brand play-dough. It was a fun part of my childhood and there are so many fun sets to create new and entertaining sets for your toys.

Did you know that traditional store-bought play-dough usually contains gluten? If you’re on a gluten-free diet, you’ll need to make sure you stay away from those brands and we have just the thing for you!

Making your own gluten-free play-dough is not as hard as you would think and honestly it only takes a few simple steps and a little bit of your time for a big payoff! Your kids will be happy and you’ll have found the perfect activity to keep them entertained.
