Makin’ Playdough

By Heather

Sometimes I try to switch things up from our sameoldeverydayboringmorning. The other day we decided to make play dough (can’t believe I’ve never done this before!).

Cole loved standing on his little stool and watching (“helping”) me stir all of the ingredients together in a saucepan on the stove (it was safe, I promise).

Here’s a foolproof recipe for play dough that your kids will love (and you may love just as much!)

Velvet Play Dough

1 cup flour
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon oil
1/4 cup salt
food coloring

Mix all ingredients, adding food coloring last. Stir over medium heat until smooth. Remove from pan and knead until blended smooth and forms a dough. If it it still lumply knead with your hands.  Place in plastic bag or airtight container when cooled. Will last for a long time.

*hint, after I made my base color and kneaded it, I just split the dough and put a tiny bit of whatever color in and kneaded it more to make another color!

Let me know how yours turns out!
