Make Your Own Play-Doh

We had a rainy day/not feeling so great afternoon. Perfect recipe for a day of play-doh! I didn’t have any around the house (shocker, I know), so the kids helped me make some. It’s easy, and they can both help because there are enough ingredients for both of them to do something, yet not too many to be overwhelming.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 to 2 cups warm water (I had to play around with this part)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • food coloring/unsweetened drink mix

Add all dry ingredients, then oil and coloring. Mix well, kneed, and then HAVE FUN! :-)

I made 2 colors for them with blue and red liquid food dye

It didn’t stay separated for long, and we learned that red and blue make purple!

She was so excited to play with this!
I do have one word of advice though: I would save this in Ziploc bags, not Tupperware. I  tried store it, and it grew moldy within 3 days. It might have lasted longer in the refrigerator, but I’m not sure… Just keep an eye on it.
