Frequently Asked Questions
What ingredients are needed to make homemade playdough?
This homemade playdough recipe is simple, natural, and great for kids. They enjoy making the DIY playdough almost as much as playing with it! Mix together the flour, salt, and cream of tartar. Mix together ½ cup of warm water with a few drops of food coloring. Slowly pour the water into the flour mixture, stirring as you pour.
What can you do with homemade playdough?
Use number or letter cookie cutters along with homemade playdough for math and literacy. Add counters for one to one counting practice too. Create a holiday theme such as orange playdough and black spiders for halloween with dice for counting.
How do you make playdough without cream of tartar?
Add the vegetable oil and boiling water, and using a spatula, mix until combined. Once it’s cool enough to handle, use your hands to knead the playdough in the bowl until it becomes smooth, about 2 minutes. (It may appear wet at first but will dry as you knead and the water gets fully absorbed.)
How do you store homemade playdough?
Use the homemade playdough as is, or if desired, color with food coloring of your choice. (If using food coloring, it’s best to mix the playdough in a bowl while wearing disposable gloves to avoid coloring your hands.) Homemade playdough will last for up to 2 months if stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
