We’ve been having some cold spring days lately, so I thought it was a good time to make some play dough. It’s simple to make and fun for kids to help choose the color!
Homemade Play Dough
2 Cups Flour
2 Cups Warm Water
1 Cup Salt
2 Tbs. Oil (I use Canola)
1 Tbs. Cream of Tartar
Food Coloring (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a pot and stir over low heat. The dough will thicken and begin to resemble mashed potatoes. When the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the pan and begins to clump in the center, remove the pan from heat and allow the dough to cool enough to handle. Knead the dough until it is smooth and feels like store-bought play dough.
Note: If you start to knead the dough and it feels too sticky, you just need to cook it a bit longer.
The pic may fool you – but the pan wasn’t hard to clean out!
