|Once you make your own playdough, you’ll never go back to PlayDoh! Here’s our stovetop version.|
|Stovetop Playdough Recipe
Mix these ingredients in a pot or pan over medium heat:
1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 tablespoon cooking oil
5-10 drops of kiddo’s desired food coloring
|Buying PlayDoh means we’d miss out on all this great kitchen play together!|
|DIY playdough is not a new concept. I just never considered making it because I didn’t know how easy it was. His teacher taught us how to make it at a parent group meeting… took just 5 minutes!|
|It calls for 2 teaspoons. Instead of a full teaspoon, I give him a 1/4 teaspoon so he can scoop it out 8 times. The kid LOVES to scoop!|
|He likes to level it with his finger rather than a straight edge.|
|Stir the ingredients over medium heat until it forms into dough.|
|Place on foil. Then knead it with your hands.
In about a minute, its cool enough for kiddo to play with.
|Flatten it out, sprinkle some glitter, then knead it some more.|
|Store in ziploc bags or airtight containers. DIY playdough is super easy to make and the ingredients are super common. This is the cooked/stovetop version. We also plan to try a no-cook recipe. You can even add various scents to make it smell yummy like chocolate, vanilla, lavendar, etc.
