DIY Homemade Play Dough

Two months ago I’ve made my first homemade play dough and this is now the third time that I’ve made this. It seems that every month I’m cooking play dough. My son always reminds me to cook clay if his play dough runs out. I don’t know if it is a good idea that he knows that I can make this. Hehe! Again, I got my recipe from "Musings from a stay-at-home mom". 


1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
food coloring

Mix flour, cream of tartar and salt. 

Add water and oil

Cook over low/medium heat, stirring.

Once it begins to thicken, add the food coloring.

Continue stirring until the mixture is much thicker and begins to gather around the spoon.

 Remove the dough onto wax paper or a plate to cool. 

I put my play dough in an airtight container for storage. 

or you can use Martha Stewart recipe

1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp cooking oil
1 cup water
Food coloring
