Homemade Playdough Recipe

This is a perfect recipe for playdough.  My dear friend Eri, who runs Greek4Kids passed it along to me and it came out wonderfully!


2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
2 cups of colored water
1tbsp cooking oil
1tsp cream of tartar

You put it all together in a large pot and mix with a wooden spoon on medium high heat. This yields a huge quantity!  We used yellow color, so what I did was take half the dough and add blue food coloring and knead it until evened out to make some green playdough .  Just make sure to wear gloves!

The kneading didn't work as well as I'd hoped so what I'd recommend is halving the amount of the ingredients and making two separate batches of different colors.

Store in a plastic container in the fridge.

Happy molding!

  1. I love this playdough! Very good quality playdough, easy to make and keeps well in the fridge.

    I love the idea of halving the amount and making two different colours. Now off to buy blue food colouring! :)
