Introduction: How to Make Playdough

This is a quick and simple recipe for making playdough at home. All you need is a few ingredients.

Play doh is just so fun to play with no matter how old you are. Here's how to make your own play doh at home.
You'll need: 2.5 cups water 1 1/4 c. salt 1 1/2 tbsp. cream of tartar 5 tbsp. vegetable oil 2.5 cups flour Food coloring

Mix ingredients together in a large pot until well blended. Cook on medium heat while stirring continuously. Playdough will start to clump and stick to the spoon, but just scrape your spoon and keep mixing. When the play doh is finished cooking it will be pretty obvious. Remove from heat and place on wax paper. You can separate your dough for the colors now. Knead the play dough until you get the color thoroughly mixed . You can you store your homemade play doh in ziplock bags or tupperware containers. From our experience, this recipe doesn't tend to dry too quickly, which is a good thing if you have little ones who sometimes forget to put up their play doh when finished playing.

We hope you enjoyed this recipe. Please let us know in the comments how yours came out!
