Homemade Playdough recipe

When it is cold out, this will entertain the kids for hours - you can find all sorts of things around the house that they can use to cut and play with it - I love rolling playdough into balls and rolling them across the table to each other.

 Ingredients for this classic playdough recipe:

  • plain white flour – 1 cup
  • salt – 0.5 cups
  • cream of tartar – 2 tsp (you can substitute 2 tbsp of baking soda)
  • water – 1 cup
  • cooking oil – 1 tsp (if you use baking soda, add 1 tbsp of oil instead of 1 tsp)
  • food coloring

Directions for this classic playdough recipe:

  • Mix all the ingredients together with a fork in a mixing bowl until the mixture is smooth and one solid color
  • Pour the mixture into a pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Stir until smooth and then until playdough bunches up to form a ball
  • Take it out of the pan and allow the playdough to cool
  • Knead for a few minutes and store in an airtight container
