Take the Learning Home: Homemade Playdough Recipe

Homemade playdough can delight the senses and provide hours of free-form sculpting fun. Try our recipe and let us know how it turns out!

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1.5 cups salt
  • 6 tsp. cream of tarter
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • 3 cups water

Pour all ingredients into a large pot. Stir constantly over medium heat until a dough ball forms by pulling away from the sides. Knead dough until the texture matches play dough (1-2 minutes). Store in a plastic container. Should last for 3 months or longer.
