Homemade Play dough

Last week, we spent quite some time indoors because it was just tooo hot. So, I needed some fun activities to do with BK to keep us both busy. I remembered the play dough cutting tools we scored from a yard sale the other week, so I decided to make him some dough to play with! I does really well with not putting sand and little things in his mouth, so I figured I could give it a try.

Here’s the recipe I used:

  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Salt
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1Tbsp Cooking Oil
  • 2Tsp Cream of Tartar
  • Food colouring of your choice

Put everything into a sauce pan. Stir over low/medium heat until a dough forms. Let cool, and play!

Just make sure you keep stirring, and scrape the bottom of the pan. That’s where the dough starts to form, and you don’t want to burn it 😉

 Super gooey! Don’t worry, once it cools, it’s not so sticky.

When not in use, store in an air tight container!


This was a huge hit with Bk!
