The OT Toolbox: Crayon Play Dough Recipes

I realized we have a TON of crayon play dough recipes on the blog.  Other play dough recipes, too actually... But, over the years, we've had more than a few broken crayons.  When there are four kids in the house, I guess broken crayons are a given! They end up under the couch cushions, in the corners of bedrooms, and under the dining room side table.  If you've got as many broken crayons as we do, why not use them to mix up a sensory and fine motor tool for creative play with crayon dough recipes of all kinds. Using crayon pieces in dough will create a soft play dough with the most vivid color you will ever see!

Now, the question is: Which play dough recipe to try first?!
