We’ve had a shortage of play dough in our house lately-which Is a bad thing according to a 2 year old! It’s one of her favorite things to do….. and one thing I know is that I’m so tired of buying play dough! So today when Hailey asked me for the hundredth time to play with play dough…and we had none…I thought now was the perfect time to make some!
These instructions are for THE BEST play dough ever!! I love how smooth it feels and I don’t think I’ll ever buy play dough EVER again! It’s also really quick to make so I made a few different colors.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp. cream of tarter
Food coloring (I usually put 4-6 drops depending how dark I wanted the color
Combine all the ingredients together in a pot.
Turn the stove on to medium heat and continuously stir until everything sticks together into one ball
Then place onto wax paper or you can just use your counter top
Let it cool a couple minutes and then knead it until smooth.
Then if you want more repeat…I ended up making 4 colors and then I got tired of making it. Another idea is you could put glitter in it to give it a little sparkle, if i had glitter at the time i would definitely have done that!
Keep it in a sealed container (I just used sandwich Ziploc bags) and if it becomes a little dry after time put it in a bowl and knead a little water into it.
Then let the kiddo or kiddos have fun!
So much fun!
The cookie cutters were her favorite thing to use.
I eventually got out the 'rockin roll' aka the rolling pin for her to use as well and she loved that!
Have fun making play dough for your kids!
