Easy Peasy Playdough

For our preschool, I usually make this recipe X 7 but I make it two batches (X 3 and X 4). That allows 8 kids to each have an ample amount of playdough at once.

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


Mix all ingredients except the food coloring in a mixing bowl with a whisk.

Add food coloring and pour mixture in a large saute or omelet pan. (The color with change slightly once cooked.)

Stir over medium heat until all liquid is cooked into dough.

Remove mixture from pan, allow to cool and knead until smooth.

Store in a plastic bag once completely cooled.

Last month, Jack turned 6! Where does the time go? He has developed into a passionate and friendly kid. He says "hello" to everyone and makes friends easily. He has an aptitude for math and loves to write and draw. Best of all, he's not to old to still cuddle with his mama!
