“An inexpensive way to make playdough. I have made this up and given it as birthday treats with a cookie cutter to go along with the playdough.”
1 1/2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together 1 cup flour, 2 Tablespoons cream of tartar and 1/4 cup salt.
  2. Combine and add to dry ingredients: 1 cup water, 1 Tablespoon oil and 2 teaspoons food coloring.
  3. Cook over medium heat and stir for 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Mixture will thicken and form a ball in pan.
  5. Turn out of pan and gently knead on a lightly floured surface.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
  7. I usually don't use as much food coloring as suggested in recipe.
  8. Add a few drops and stir dough until you achieve the color you are looking for.
