Homemade Playdough

Many times I wanted to make play dough with my kiddos, but I thought you had to cook it to make it amazing, or you needed special ingredients that I knew I didn’t have.  I was wrong.  I’m sad that I missed out on many days that could have been filled with fun play dough play time!

What you need:

  • 2c. Flour
  • 1c. Salt
  • 2Tbsp oil
  • 1c. water

Combine all ingredients, mix well and knead until smooth.  I did have to add a dusting more of flour at times when I thought it was too sticky.  Use you best judgement…add a little bit at a time…your end result should look like this!

You can add any spices that you have in your cupboard to create a smell you love!  Examples:  Nutmeg, cinnamon, Pumpkin spice, coconut extract, Vanilla extract, or any other extract that your nose is attracted to!

Store you creation in an airtight container to ensure you’re able to play with it for days to come!

Have fun!
