      Caring For Play-Dough:

      • Homemade dough can keep for up to 3 months.
      • Store it in a zip-lock bag, or in an airtight container.
      • Store in fridge or at room temperature.
      • If dough begins to dry out, reactivate it by adding water, or store with a damp paper towel overnight.
