Now I do have a question what can you do to keep this from drying out .. a bit of oil on your hands and kneed it around? to keep it pliable?

We use the same stuff as 3girls1boy does. Wonderful stuff. We mix the food coloring in with the water BEFORE adding it to the mixture. I also like making my own because if wee kids eat it , it won't hurt them.
One of my favorite all time playdough recipies is for Peanut Butter Playdough. My youngest dd has a severe allergy to peanuts/treenuts. We don't use this anymore. But the older two loved it.
* 3 1/2 cups peanut butter
* 4 cups confectioners' sugar
* 3 1/2 cups honey
* 4 cups dry milk powder
In large bowl, cream together peanut butter and confectioners' sugar, then beat in honey and fold in milk powder. Divide into equal portions and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
