I never used to make my own play dough. I always thought it would be way too much hassle until I discovered an easy no cook way to make it!! We like to add essentials oils, sparkles, color and sometimes dried lavender to our playdough depending on what mood we are in! The possibilities are endless and it is much more cost effective than store bought playdough.
Here is my simple - no cook - play dough recipe. Enjoy!!
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of boiling water - add food coloring directly to the water if you are coloring your playdough as it makes it much easier to blend the color
- 1/3 cup of salt
- 2 TSP of cream of tarter
- 1 TBS of vegetable oil
- add a few drops of essential oils if you like scented playdough
- 1 TBS of glycerin to make it extra soft
Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until it firms up. If your playdough is too sticky add more flour a tablespoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.
