I used to make this all the time for my kids when they were little. The best part about it is you really dont have to worry about it getting in the carpet. Just let it dry and vacuum it up! Pefect for a cold day when you want to stay in but your kids need entertaining! My kids are older now, but I'm saving this recipe for my future grandchildren!

How to Make Play Dough


  1. mix dry ingredients in one bowl, mix wet ingredients in another, add food coloring to the wet ingredients before mixing with the dry.
  2. if you want to make more than 1 color, which I had to do as my kids would fight over it, you can cut the recipe in 1/3 before mixing the dry with the wet.
  3. after using store in airtight container. If it gets a little dry you can oil up your hands and smoosh it in to re-moisten.
