How to make your own Play Dough

Who doesn’t love playing with Play Dough?  We do!!!!  After numerous times going shopping for play dough AKA: Play-Doh we decided to learn how to make our own.  It was fun, cheap and easy. The best part is non-toxic!  Bebe and I had so much fun making play dough we spent most of the evening creating different color batches.


1 Cup of Flour

1 Cup of Warm Water

1/3 Cup of Salt

2 Tsp Cream of Tartar

Liquid Food Color -A few drops to achieve your color desired

Step 1:

Combine all the ingredients in a pot.
Cook over medium to low heat, stirring pretty constantly for about 5-8 minutes until it all sticks together and starts looking like play-doh. Form a ball and remove it from the pot.
Let the mixture cool off by placing it on wax paper.

Step 2: Knead


Knead your dough until it looks nice and shiny.


Step 3: Play & Store

Play with your play-dough and store it in an air-tight container or ziplock bag. We used ziplock bags with no complaints. It will keep it from getting dry.  You will enjoy your play-dough for months!
