Easy playdough recipe

Guys! Can you believe I’ve never made playdough ever, in my adult life? What was I waiting for. I may enjoy it more than my 3 year old. I gotta say, at first when I was making it, I was all “uhh this doesn’t look right“, but fear not – and trust the process because it comes together quick.

Rather than blabbin’ on and on I’m going to make this a quick blog entry because I hate scrolling for days through blogs when all I want is the recipe. Know what I’m sayin’?

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • food colouring

Mix everything together in a pot and cook it over medium heat. Continue to stir the mixture until thickened and begins to gum up around the spoon.

Remove the dough onto a plate to cool. This is where i separated the dough into portions for food colouring since I didn’t want only one colour made. Store in an air tight container (ours is in a ziplock baggie). That’s it!

Side note, you know how regular playdough (brand name kind) gets dry semi-quickly especially if you leave it out for a few hours? This one surprisingly doesn’t! My little guy played with two of the five colours for a good 3 hours (on and off) today, and it’s still as good as the day I made it.
