Play Dough - Easy and Fun to make!

Posted on May 15, 2013 at 9:25 AM

I have been making play dough for my daughter since she was a year old - she is now ten!  It is easy to make!  Here are two easy recipes.

Play Dough

1 c. flour

1/2 c. salt

1 c. water

1T. oil

2 tsp. cream of tartar

Food coloring if you desire

Mix all ingredients except color in saucepan.  Heat, stirring constantly.  When the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and is not sticky, remove pan from heat.  Knead dough add color if you desire.  Let dough cool to room temperature before storing.  Store in air-tight bags or small containers.  

Kool-aid Play Dough

1 c. flour

1 pkg. unsweetened Kool-aid

2 T. cream of tartar

1 T. vegetable oil

1/4 c. salt

1 c water

Mix flour, salt, tarter and Kool-aid in saucepan.  Add water and oil.  Stir over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes.  When mixture forms a ball, remove from pan.  Knead until smooth.  Cool to room temperature and store in air-tight bags or containers.    KIDS ARE MORE LIKELY TO TRY TO EAT THIS FORM, SINCE IT HAS THE KOOL AID SMELL!
