How to Make Playdough

Ever wondered how to make playdough?  Here's a recipe for playdough that my mom sent me recently.  We used to make this when I was a kid and I had a blast making it with my daughter this week.

What you'll need:
2 1/2 cups of Plain Flour
1 1/2 cups of Water
1/2 cup of Salt
2 Tablespoons of Cream of Tarter
2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon Food Coloring
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Put all ingredients (except Vanilla) into a pot on the stove over warm heat. Stir until well mixed and add vanilla. Cook on Warm and keep stirring until it has the Play Dough consistancy (just a couple of minutes).

Check out my cookbook/recipe holder below.  One of the best gifts I've ever received.  I use it all the time.

Here's my little helper bee. This is the perfect project for those kids who love to help in the kitchen.

Starting to get that playdough consistency...

Let the playdough cool completely on some wax paper on the counter before sealing it in an air-tight container. 

Here's a little buddy of mine playing with the finished product. 

These Mommy and Me aprons are so so cute!!!  Perfect for Christmas time!  Check out Corey Lee Creations or visit Corey's Etsy Page to purchase. They are made using a kitchen dish towel which is absolutely perfect because how many times do you find yourself grabbing towel to wipe your hands while in the middle of something?  This really made things easier and my little one loved that we had matching aprons.

  3. Don't you just LOVE homemade playdough?! I think it is so much softer and STAYS softer so much longer than store bought. Your recipe is very similar to mine but your final quantity seemed much greater so I will have to try it out. I have four busy boys to divide between so we need mucho play-doh. Very cute pictures :) Btw, I'm visiting from your link at Iheartnaptime.

  4. I was just telling my friend how we used to do this when we were younger and she didn't believe me! I have to send this to her!

  5. We make playdough, too:) When playmates are over they are AMaZed to find we KNOW how to make it. I'ma new follower from TatertotsandJello!
    Happy Weekend

  6. My kids love making this too, and it is the best, lasts forever, and does not dry out.

    Your sweet girl, looks so cute with her concentration and tongue sticking out, love it!!!
