What kid doesn’t love play dough?

 Squishy, cool, bright, and so fun to play with. Even better, it helps develop fine motor skills and imagination.  Instead of going out and buying commercial Play Doh, try making it at home!
It’s super easy, inexpensive, and a perfect project for the kids to help with. We love making our own play dough, but there are so many great ones to chose from!

Here are a few that we have tried:

  


 

Play Dough

2 cups flour
3 tbsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup salt
4 tbsp oil
1/2 cup boiling water
food coloring
Mix dry ingredients together. Mix oil, food coloring and boiling water in a separate container. Stir liquid mixture until cool enough to knead. Knead until smooth. If play-dough is too dry, add more water, a little at a time. If play-dough is too crumbly, knead in a small amount of oil. Store in an airtight container.

 

No-Cook Play Dough

4 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tbsp oil
1 and 1/2 cup water
Mix oil and food color together before adding to dry mixture. Mix until pliable. Keep in container or plastic bag.

 

Kool-Aid Play Dough

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 package of Kool-Aid
1 cup hot water
Combine ingredients and mix.

 

Gingerbread Play Dough

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 tbsp. ground ginger
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup water
Mix together and knead until smooth.

 

Coffee Play Dough

2 cups used coffee grounds
1 and 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup salt
water
flour
Mix all ingredients until pliable. Add water, flour as needed to achieve a working consistency.

 

Oatmeal Play Dough

1 part flour
1 part water
2 parts oatmeal
Mix well and knead.

 

 

 

My favorite is the kool-aid Play dough because it comes out in beautiful, soft shades, smells delicious, and feels the closest to store bought Play Doh of all the recipes we’ve tried.What’s your favorite Play Dough recipe?
