How To: Homemade Playdough

Pin it button big

Homemade playdough always brings back great memories for us. In winter, our preschool teacher would often treat us to a fresh batch of homemade playdough. Here's a simple recipe from While She Naps...

Ingredients:

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.
