Easy Homemade Playdough from Christine Ieronimo

Easy Homemade Playdough


1 cup plain flour
Half cup of salt
1 cup of water
3 tablespoons of cooking oil
2 teaspoons of cream of tartar
3-4 drops of food coloring (coloring gels make brighter colors)


Mix all ingredients together until most of the lumps are gone. Put in a saucepan and start cooking it slowly, over medium heat. You can also add sparkles or glitter.

When the dough starts to come away from the pan,  you can take it off the heat.

When it is cool enough, take it out of the pan and knead it for 2-3 minutes.

Store the playdough in a zip lock bag, it will last a long time. Have fun and enjoy!


Note: Playdough can be poisonous to animals. Keep out of reach of pets!
