Homemade Playdough Recipe
2 1/2 cups water
1 1/4 cups salt
1 1/2 tablespoons cream of tartar
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups flour
Food coloring
optional extras: glitter
Add the water, salt and vegetable oil to a pot over medium heat. Use
a hand whisk to stir in the cream of tartar and flour. The whisk
prevents flour clumps from forming.
Switch the whisk to a wooden spoon as soon as the mixture starts to
get thicker and turn the heat to low. Continue stirring.
Once the ends of the play dough start to get dry on the edges and
you are able to pinch the dough without it sticking to your fingers it is
Scoop the dough out onto a heat resist surface and leave to cool.
Once the dough is cool enough to handle, roll into a ball and cut as
many wedges as you want colors.
Make a little well in the playdough and fold the dough in on itself until
the coloring is distributed. Then simply roll and knead it to work the
color in more.
Have fun playing!!
