How to Make your own Playdough

Share on Pinterest

Playdough, something most of us played with as kids.

We rolled it, flatten it, pinched it and formed it into many shapes and imaginative creatures.

Today I would love to share a Playdough Recipe or two.

Playdough is most definitely one of my favorite activities to do with the boys and I hope soon our newest edition, just as soon as she stops eating EVERY thing in sight! We do so love to use our own playdough recipe.

How to Make Playdough Recipe

The first is for a rather large batch, great for a large party activity or play date. You can always split the dough up and make multiple colors. It also depends on your preference for texture.

Homemade Playdough Recipe 1

Play dough with oil

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 3 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 4 table spoons oil
  • 1 and half cups water (warm / hot)
  • food coloring

Mix up the liquids and then add the dry.

Uncooked Playdough Recipe 2

  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • food coloring

Mix up the liquids and add the dry.

I have been told using a few drops glycerine adds a shine.

I also know my mother in law adds some essential oils to her play dough, I will ask her for the recipes next time I see her and post scented playdough recipes soon!

Update: Check out my new favorite homemade playdough recipe!

How to Make your own Play DoughMy 2 and half year old is fascinated by flour, rice and pasta, basically anything he can sift his hands through or carry off in large masses.

For the making of this Playdough Recipe I mixed up a batch, minus a bit of flour, so the food coloring wouldn’t stain, then took it to the craft table for kids to help me kneed the dough and add more flour until we got the texture ready to play with. The 2 year old had the flour handled and the 4 year old had the kneading down.

Easy Playdough Recipe Once ready and firm, it was play time! We did the classic rolling, cutting with shapes, more rolling. 🙂How to Make your own Play Dough - No-Cook Play Dough Recipe
