I’ve mentioned in the past how much I love Invitations to Play. Many of these involve play dough which might just be because I enjoy making it so much. Today, I’m going to share with you, my all time favorite, “go to” play dough recipe. The best part? It only takes 5-10 minutes start to finish and uses all common ingredients. It’s also very flexible and forgiving!
HERE is the link to where I first found the recipe!
¼ cup salt
1 cup flour
2 T cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 t oil
2 t food coloring (or however much you want!)
You can also add fragrance, glitter, etc.
Mix the first 6 ingredients in a pan.
Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring constantly,
It will pull away from all the edges and form a ball.
Dump onto wax paper or parchment paper and keep kneading until smooth.
Then add glitter if you want!
You can store it in a container or a Ziploc bag.
Some fun fragrance ideas:
- Fresh lemon, lime or orange
- Scented body wash
This recipe is so quick and easy and personable, it makes wonderful last minute gifts or party favors in a cute container, it’s fun for a rainy day, and kids enjoy making it too!
