Just wanted to say, Thank You. We have been looking for Alum forever. No one knew where to look, sending me all sorts of places. Now I know it's a baking thing. Duh. I have never made playdough, but the kids made it with their grandma. I guess I need to try now. LOL Thanks.

I use to make play-doh all the time growing up. One time I threw it over the fence and my neighbors dog ate it and almost died. My neighbor than came over and threw the gagged up play-doh in my dad's face! That is my favorite memory of homemade play-doh! I got in so much trouble. I want to make some for peyton! Although I'm sure she will just think it is something to eat!

You have the BEST pictures by the way!
