Yield: 1Large Ball
Medium sauce pan
Large wooden spoon or metal spoon.
An air tight container for storage or freezer bag
Wax paper to pour out the dough, allowing it to cool.
2tspcream of tarter
Any gel food coloring
1tspOf any scented non-toxic essential oilVery optional. Some young kids might try to eat this if it smells too good!
First, In a medium saucepan, add 1 cup of flour, 2 teaspoons of cream of tarter, and 1/3 cup of salt. The salt will keeps it from sticking and helps preserve it
Next, add 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
Then, turn your burner on medium to low and stir. It will be a little lumpy which is okay.
Next, before it starts getting thick which WILL happen fast, add your gel Food Coloring. If it gets to thick before you add it, it will be hard to get an even color. Add the gel color and stir!
Then, keep stirring, it is going to start thickening up. This could take anywhere from 30 seconds-2 minutes depending on how hot your pan or stove is.
As you see it’s getting thicker, keep stirring and scraping the bottom of the pot.
Put the dough on some wax paper and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Then take the ball in your hands and knead for a few seconds to add tenderness.
For more playdough of various colors, repeat the recipe, but add different colors of dye. When making this for a play school classroom, or playdate, simply increase the ingredient amounts!The one con about this recipe, is that its cooked entirely on the stove, which may cut down on the amount that kids can help and when they can play with it as it cools.This is an quick and easy-to-make recipe that produces a roll-able, foldable, moldable, non-toxic dough that doesn’t dry out too fast and can be saved for later play, if stored correctly.However, I haven't found a recipe better!
