Play Dough Fun

I have never bought Play-Doh or play dough for my girls. Sounds kinda bad right? Why buy what I can easily make though right?? In fact my father was rather upset by this fact at first and felt that Austin HAD to have Play-Doh.

Have you tried making it?

My recipe:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp cream of tater
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • food colouring

There are two ways to do this.
1.  Combine all the ingredients except for food colouring to a pot over medium heat. Stirring constantly. The dough will become sticky and then form into a ball of play dough. Remove from the pot and let cool enough to handle. Now you can knead the colour(s) into the dough. Doing it this way you can have more colours by breaking the dough into sections before adding colour.
2. Combine all ingredients including the food colouring, this will give you all one colour, into a pot over medium heat.  Stirring constantly. The dough will become sticky and then form into a ball of play dough. Remove from the pot and let cool.
