Free playdough!


Here is a recipe for homemade playdough.

3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 tbs cream of tarter

Mix above in a large bowl. Set aside.

Microwave 2 cups of water for 2 minutes. (if you want to add color put it in the water. I add 2 pks of unsweetened koolaid for vibrant colors)

Ad hot water to dry flour. Add 3 tbs of cooking oil to the bowl and mix until ready to kneed. Kneed dough until uniform in color and not sticky anymore. (to not get your hands stained use dish washing gloves). Store at room temp in a ziploc bag.

This makes a lot of dough. About 4 tubs worth. Plenty for sharing.

awesome post! i like the koolaid idea, especially for kids because you know they're gonna end up eating some of it! my husband and i had another couple over for dinner one night, and we wanted to play "Cranium" but the little play dough (which is one of the funnest parts of the game if you havent' played it) was hard... so i ran into my kitchen and whipped up some play dough from a memory of my mom making it when i was a kid. i only used flour, water, salt and food coloring (i ended up with the food coloring ALL over my hands). I'll be sure to copy your recipe down! thanks!
