This simple Homemade Playdough recipe is great for enhancing kids creativity and sparks them to make whatever they dream up.
Be careful not to spill it on carpets, as it can get stuck in the fiber. This homemade playdough should be stored in sealed bags or containers with air-tight lids.
This makes a great gift idea at birthday parties. Put the playdough into Ziploc bags then into mason jars, label and seal with love.
I labeled our jars with Martha Stewart chalk lables. But if you want to use sticker labels, here are large labels (for large jars) and circle labels (for small jars) for you to download and print to name your jars and gifts!
- Combine flour, cream of tartar, vegetable oil and salt into a pot. Mix food color into 1 cup of hot water and add to pot. Cook the mixture over medium heat and stir frequently for a few minutes. When the mixture becomes the consistency of dough and is well blended, remove the pot from the heat and let the dough cool off for a few minutes.
- Once it has cooled and ok to touch, place the dough on a layer of wax paper and knead it into a large ball.
- Repeat the process for all colors.
