Homemade Playdough

Classic Playdough Recipe:

  • plain white flour – 1 cup
  • salt – 1/2 cup
  • cream of tartar – 2 tsp (you can substitute 2 tbsp of baking soda)
  • water – 1 cup
  • cooking oil – 1 tsp (if you use baking soda, add 1 tbsp of oil instead of 1 tsp)
  • food coloring


  • Mix all the ingredients together with a fork in a mixing bowl until the mixture is smooth and one solid color.
  • Pour the mixture into a pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Stir until smooth and then until playdough bunches up to form a ball.
  • Take it out of the pan and allow the playdough to cool.
  • Knead for a few minutes and store in an airtight container.
We made 2 batches.  We made 1 with cream of tartar and one with the baking soda option.  They both turned out great!

The enjoyed lots of time today playing with playdough.  :)
