Playdough recipe!

Just in case you wanted to know... I thought I'd share the recipe Kamrynn and I used to make our Playdough! It was super easy, super quick, and the Playdough turned out great! In fact we made TWO batches... orange and purple! So without further delay...


1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tbsp. veggie oil
1 c. water
Food coloring

Dissolve salt in (warm) water.
Pour all ingredients in a pot, and stir over medium heat until a ball forms.
Knead dough until it resembles Playdough.
If I remember correctly, we added our food coloring to the water, after the salt had dissovled, but before we added the rest of the ingredients.
Store in an airtight container, or in a Ziploc bag! I think I remember reading that the Playdough should last 2-3 months.

Have fun!

I'm going to have to try this. Addy's favorite saying: "I'm bored!! There's nothing to do!!' : ) It's 44 days and counting to the first day of school!! : )

That's funny. "I'm bored" has to be one of my LEAST favorite kid quotes of all times... every time my kids say that to me, I feel myself turning into my mother with my responses! I still cannot believe Addy will be starting KINDERGARTEN!!!! Does school really start in 44 days!?!?
