Playdough Recipe

Filed under: Age: Preschool,Recipes — Pragmatic Mom @ 11:50 pm

This is an old recipe from my first preschool.  My middle daughter used to LOVE to play with playdough but she didn’t like the stinky smell of purchased playdough.  Mix a batch and store in an air-tight container for hours of fun.

2 cups flour

1 cup salt

4 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 teaspoons cooking oil

2 cups of water

food coloring

Combine everything except the food coloring  in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan and heat over medium heat, stirring frequently.  It should be done in about 3 minutes; the dough will start to come together and pulls away from the pan.  Add food coloring a few drops at a time until you are happy with the intensity of the color.  Dump out and knead about 10 times.  Give the warm playdough to your child.  Warm playdough is the best!
