The Hillbilly Housewife just had a great article about how to make your own playdough! When I was a kid we never made our own playdough, but we did make our own Goo-ey Flarp-like thing. We just mixed corn starch, water, and food coloring until it was a consistency we wanted to play with.
Homemade playdough is a great project to do with kids, and its great for the environment! You eliminate all the chemicals and carbon costs of making and packaging playdough, and you don't have to worry (too much) about the kids eating it.
I might just make some myself...
