This is a super easy recipe for homemade play dough that I received from a friend. I hate the smell of the store bought stuff so I like to make my own. Plus the kids have fun making it and choosing their color. This is also fun to make on hot summer days for a break from the sun, or for Joy School for the kids to play with.
These are all the ingredients you need to make the play dough.
Here is what you’ll need and how you’ll do it:
Homemade Play Dough
Mix in a sauce pan:
1 c flour
1/2 c salt
2 T cream of tartar
1 c water
1 T oil
Cook on medium, stirring constantly (about 3-5 minutes) until it forms a ball. Knead on lightly floured surface. Store in an air tight container.
Mixing it all in a pan on the stove
After a few minutes, it will start to change. It’s crazy how it starts to form together and make a soft moldable ball.
Then, knead it on a lightly floured counter
