You know, I have no idea why I wasted so much time and money on play dough from the store. You know- making those “quick” trips because we were out and the kids were begging. Just to waste money and time :(. And ya know- more plastic waste with all those yellow plastic tubs! Ugh!
Learn from me- save some time and save some money!
This is so easy it will blow you mind. Seriously.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour.
- 3/4 cup salt.
- 4 teaspoons cream of tartar.
- 2 cups lukewarm water.
- 2 Tablespoons of oil (I used coconut oil, but vegetable works too)
- Tupperware to fit 🙂
Mix together all dry ingredients. Put mixed ingredients in sauce pan. Slowly add warm water and oil while heating on a medium heat. Stir continuously. If you are making one color you may add a touch of food coloring at this time.
Continue stirring until dough forms a ball and becomes thicker. This took a few minutes.
Next place dough ball onto wax paper to cool, and let the kids play! Mine played with this on and off for hours! I kept it in a glass Tupperware container and they easily could get it out and put it away for me 🙂
My boys chose green!
I hope this helps some of you mamma’s our there! I’d love you to tag me in your creations!
