Copied from Furgal Girls

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 tsp. Cream of Tartar
  • 1/2 cup Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
  • Food Coloring
  • Optional: Vanilla or Peppermint Extract, or Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • This makes a good-sized batch, so you could also cut the recipe in half… or make the full recipe using two different sauce pans {to make 2 different colors}

What You’ll Do:

  • Mix Together all ingredients {except food coloring} in saucepan
  • Optional: Add in a splash of Vanilla extract to make it smell yummy. Or… for more fun scents: add in some Peppermint extract to the ‘Green’ playdough you’re making, or Pumpkin Pie Spice to the ‘Orange’ playdough you’re making! {thanks to Heather & Susan for sharing these tips on Facebook!}

  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.

  • As soon as the mixture begins to thicken, add in food coloring. Continue to stir.
  • Mixture will begin forming into a solid, and gathering on spoon.
  • Remove from heat to cool, then remove from saucepan to cool on wax paper, plate, etc.
  • Store in freezer ziploc bag. Then, you can even place the bag in a dark container, or in the fridge… to make it last even longer!

If it starts to get dry after several weeks, try adding a few drops of water into play dough to extend it’s shelf life.
