Homemade Playdough

Homemade Playdough Recipe:

2 Cups of flour
1 Cup of salt
4 tsp Cream of Tartar
2 Cups water
3 Tbs oil
Food Coloring

Put all the dry ingredients in a pot, add the wet ingredients and stir continuously over low/medium heat until dough forms into a ball. 

When it is no longer sticky to the touch it is done!

Store in an airtight container.


Travis decided that the playdough needed to be liberated from the bowl.

I love the texture of homemade playdough...it is so much better than commercial playdough in my opinion. I'm kind of a diva that way;)

I love his little tongue out as he concentrates.

Thanks for sharing this recipe, Amy! I just threw away the last of the kids' old playdough... it was brown (from all the colors mixing) and dry. I am excited to try this recipe and let my kids play! :)

Anna said...

So awesome! I'm excited to make some of my own and I'm bummed that I had to miss your party last week. We'll have to do it again because I'm sure the kids would love it!

Love that blue, Amy! I've never tried this, but I keep bookmarking recipes. Does the food coloring stain hands or clothes?

I love homemade playdough! I really should make some for my little man. Maybe I'll start with the edible stuff since he still likes to taste everything...
