DIY Homemade Playdough

HomeMade DIY PlayDough

Everybody loves play dough. I know as a kid that was the first thing I would go and play with. Here is a simple recipe for it and is a great project for you and your child to do together!

What you will Need:

1 Cup Flour
1/2  Cup Salt
2 Teaspons Cream of Tarter
1 Teaspoon Cooking Oil
1 Cup Water 
Food Coloring (Color of your Choice)

What you Need to Do:
  • In a heavy saucpaan mix all the ingreidents.
  • Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly for approx 3 minutes or until mixture pulls away from the sides of the pan. (It will look like mashed potatoes.)
  • Remove from the heat and let cool for 1 minute. Next you should knead the dough until it has a soft, smooth texture.
  • This homemade play dough can be stored in for several weeks in airtight containers. 

I hope you enjoy this project. The play dough that I made kept for almost 2 weeks!! We made 4 different colors (red, blue, green & yellor) so the kids each had their own. 

And just in case you are wondering what Cream of Tarter is, just look at your local grocery store in the spices aisle/section.
