Here's our favorite play recipe for edible baby play dough without all the yuck added salt!

I first created this baby play dough recipe when I grabbed three containers of baby cereal on sale...

Then my baby tasted bigger and better things and decided to boycott the oatmeal so we were left with a boat-load of baby cereal!

This recipe is safe for those little hands and mouths to explore all the benefits of sensory play!
