How To: Homemade Play Dough
I remembered in college I took a class called Child Care Enrichment and I made play dough for the kids. Homemade play dough always brings back great memories for us a.
Here’s a simple recipe I made for my daughters Tangle Party and give each kid one and attached the recipe as her Thank You for coming to her party.
It was cute!
3 cups flour, sifted
1 1/2 cup salt
6 teaspoons cream of tartar
3 1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons oil
food coloring (she uses the gel)
Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a large pot until no lumps remain. Whisk in the wet ingredients (except for the food coloring) and stir until no lumps remain. Cook on high for 3-4 minutes until a dough forms. Separate into several portions and add food coloring, kneading until uniform in color. Store in airtight containers.
Homemade playdough is cheap, non-toxic and lasts a long time! If you’ve got a different recipe for homemade playdough, please share in the comments.
