How To Make Playdough

Making playdough at home is actually quite easy once you just dive in and try it! It’s also non-toxic – meaning those little toddlers COULD eat it and be juuuuuust fine. Check out the recipe below:

How To Make Playdough

You’ll need
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp  cream of tartar
2 cups water
4 tbsp vegetable oil
food coloring if desired

Mix the dry ingredients together. Gradually stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Cook over medium heat in a big pot, stirring constantly until the mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. When cool enough to touch, knead until smooth. Store in a plastic baggy or airtight container.

We make this for our preschool class often. It also makes a great party favor gift for birthday parties. Or it is nice to have some on hand for when your kids want to play with some dough! It doesn’t dry out as quickly as normal play doh, and the color options are endless when you use your own non-toxic food coloring. Feel free to get creative, mama! Your kids will love making this with you!
