This Peppermint Winter: Candy Cane Playdough

We needed to come up with a gift to leave my preschool friends (I'll be moving on to a new school in 2012) and thought playdough would be a good one -- all of my classmates really liked making it with us this past semester.  We were happy when we came across Artful Parent's candy cane playdough idea and we decided to do something similar using our go-to recipe.  We made one batch, split it into two, colored one half red and left the other plain.  Each got a healthy dose of glitter (red or silver) and peppermint extract.  Then mom coiled the two together in a tupperware and tied it all up.  It's a nice, easy to make gift if you are still looking for present ideas -- I hope my friends enjoy it!
