DIY Playdough

on January 3, 2013


We found this great recipe to make our very own Playdough. The whole process takes about 5 minutes. You’ll be able to create some fun colors in about an hour! 


1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
2 tbsp cream of tartar
1 cup water
2 tbsp vegetable oil
gel food coloring


  • Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a medium saucepan.
  • Add your wet ingredients, including a good amount of gel food coloring and mix well. It will remain roughly the same color, so add more in this stage, if needed.
  • Place your pan on the stove top over medium heat. Stir continuously until it starts to get chunky.  Trust me — the first time you see this, you will think you have done something wrong, don’t worry. Keep stirring until it forms a big dough ball.You will know when to take it out, then place on a plate to cool. Once cool, knead it a bit yourself or get little helpers to do it for you.

Helpful Hints:

  • Use Americolor Food Coloring to dye the dough.
  • You can also use Kool-Aid in place of food coloring. It scents the dough, but the colors aren’t very vibrant.
  • Be sure to buy plenty of cream of tartar. 
  • Try using cookie cutters to play with!
