Play Dough

  Here’s one for the kids.

This play dough recipe is quick, easy, and handles just like the store brought kind. Plus, it doesn’t leave your hands and table covered in salty (or any kind of ) residue like so many homemade recipes for play dough do. A  batch of play dough would make a great sugar-free addition to any spring – or birthday – celebration.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1 Tlb veggie oil
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar

Combine all the ingredients in a pot on your stove top and stir till you have a thick dough. Remove from heat and knead smooth.

Add food coloring of your choice to color, and glitter, if desired.

This recipe can be doubled (or tripled but you might need a bit more muscle to really stir it)

  1. That looks like so much fun! I remember hours of fun with the girls! I’m glad the kids liked the little gifts, they sure are a special bunch!

  2. This recipe is a winner! A simple way to add color is to add a package of Kool-Aid mix (or any drink mix). Look for vibrant colors. Add cookie cutters and you have hours of fun! My kids (this lady’s cousins) loved it!

    Molly, by the way, is gorgeous, as are all of her brothers!
