Homemade Play Dough


we made some homemade play dough a few days ago.
the kids loved it.



it was pretty easy to make...
all you need is:

2 cups plain flour (all purpose)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
Up to 1.5 cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right)
food coloring

we doubled the recipe and made

blue
pink
purple
orange
yellow
green

  • Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl
  • Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
  • Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone.
  • add a few drops of food coloring while you are kneading the dough (yes, your hands will look like a rainbow for a few days - unless you wear some rubber gloves.
  • If it is still a little sticky, just add a little more flour.
  • store in an air tight container.
