As most of you beside being a mother to four and a part time blogger I am also an early child care provider.
With 4 children in my care under the ages of 4 one of our staple activities is the play-dough center.
It won’t come as a big surprise when I share that we go thru a lot of it.
I have tried dozens of home made play dough recipes and this by far is my favorite.
It’s super fast to make.
Easy on the budget and clean up is quick and easy.
This recipe produces super soft dough!
Play Dough Recipe:
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup water
Mix first 4 ingredients in a pan. Add food coloring to the water then add to the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 3 – 5 minutes. Dough will become difficult to stir and form a “clump”. Remove from stove and knead for 5 minutes. Play dough will keep for a long time stored in a covered plastic container or plastic sandwich bag.
This amount of play dough this recipe produced was perfect. Each of my 4 kids received a huge clump of play dough, so there was lots to share
