The texture wasn't quite what I anticipated. It was very soft, but crumbly...
...and although it stuck together when I squeezed it into a ball...
...it crumbled almost as soon as Abe touched it.
He loved it though, so much he just had to see what it felt like on his feet!
Um, I think this kid needs a real sandbox. (Perhaps I'll put that on my list of things to do this summer.)
Because I only have one kid and I didn't want to clean up a huge mess (this stuff is messy!), I only made a small batch. Instead of 8 cups of flour, I just mixed 2 cups of flour with 1/4 cup baby oil.
I buy unbleached flour so mine had a slight brownish tint to it. Be sure to use bleached all-purpose flour if you want your dough to be white!
