Fun Make-It-Yourself Playdoh Recipes


1 cup regular (all purpose) flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water, boiling
1 T. oil
few drops of food coloring of choice

Mix flour, salt and cream of tartar together in glass bowl. Mix water, oil and food coloring, then add to dry ingredients and stir with wooden spoon until well blended.  Let cool, store in Ziploc bags.

This can be mixed and cooked over stovetop too - I just think it's easier to add the boiling water instead.

Peanut Butter Playdoh

2 parts creamy peanut butter (ex; 1 cup)
2 parts powdered sugar (ex: 1 cup)
1 part honey (ex: 1/2 cup)

Mix with mixer or dough hook - add more honey or powdered sugar, a little at a time, to get the right consistency.

Makes sure hands and utensils are clean, then roll out the dough,
and use like playdoh. They can enjoy eating the snack when
they're done playing with it. (It's very rich - they won't eat much of it)
