. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium pot or sauce pan

. “cook” it all over MEDIUM-LOW heat (my gas stove is really hot so use your own smarts to when it comes to this step).

. stir the mixture CONTINUOUSLY until it thickens and is tough to mix.  It will begin forming into a ball

. remove the mixture from the heat

. dust your counter top or cutting board with flour.  Let the play dough cool on that floured surface.

. once cooled, knead the dough with additional flour until the dough is no longer sticky (1/2-3/4 cup)

The play dough is now ready for action!  Store it in an airtight container in your fridge for up to approximately one month.  When the dough becomes sticky simply knead a lil more flour into it.
