Observations:

Moon Dough recipe using only 2 ingredientsOf these two recipes, I like recipe 1 more. Not only does it require ingredients that are readily available, but it also retains its properties in storage.

The second one works well right after mixing the ingredients. However, it doesn’t store very well. It becomes sweaty(!) and is no longer very easy to play with after a couple of months.
