Tammy’s Kid Friendly Play Dough

We love making Play Dough and it is such an AWESOME way to keep the kids entertained for hours! We want to share our popular child friendly and non toxic Play Dough Recipe with you because it is super easy and the kiddo’s LOVE it!


The Recipe

3 cups plain flour
1 cup cooking salt
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
2 tablespoons of oil
1 teaspoon of food colouring
3 cups of boiling water

We sometimes and when I say sometimes I mean almost ALWAYS love to add sparkle to our playdough with some eco friendly bio degradable glitter. This is a winner for our unicorn playdough.

You can purchase all your glitter needs at Glitter Girl 


The Method

Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large bowl
Add food colouring to a cup and fill with boiling water. Add flour mixture and 2 more cups of boiling water (Add your sparkles too now if desired)
Roughly mix the play dough and let it stand for 5 minutes. It will appear lumpy as the heat from the water is cooking the dough
After 5 minutes knead the mixture. The lumps with disappear.

Have Fun!
