Introduction: Make Your Own Playdough

Picture of Make Your Own Playdough

This is one of the simplest Playdough recipes ever!!! Enjoy!!!:):) I made Playdough from flour water and salt. I found a similar recipe online, that's how I got the idea. I worked by myself on this project. And my goal stayed the same, make AWESOME Playdough!!!:):):) I made the Playdough in my kitchen. When I was younger I used to always play with Playdough. But I didn't know you could make your own dirt cheap!!! I'm so excited!!! My biggest challenge was trying to keep the food coloring off my clothes, sadly I couldn't. If I were to make this Playdough again I would make a bigger batch of it. I was most proud of the texture of the Playdough. It is the same exact texture as real Playdough, Yipee!!!:):):):)

Step 1: Gather Materials

These are the materials you will need to make your Playdough. 1 cup of flour 1/2 cup of salt 1/2 cup of water Opt. Food coloring

Step 2: Mixing

Mix all of the ingredients together, add as much food coloring as you would like.

Step 3: Refrigerate

Once you are done mixing the ingredients together for a while, take your Playdough out of the bowl and place it on some wax paper. Wrap the wax paper around your Playdough tightly and refrigerate to keep fresh!!!:):):):) Take it out of the refrigerator whenever you would like to play with it, reuse it many times!!

i tried this recipe last week and it didn't turn out that well. it turned into a kind of mushy, sticky mess. :)

I've used this very recipe before, but never using the neon food coloring, I have to say it turned out lovely! Great instructable!
