Why did it take me 4 years of motherhood to finally make my own play dough!? My mother-in-law has been making homemade play dough since my husband was little, and now she loves doing it with her grandkids. She gave me and Noah a lesson last time we were visiting, and I couldn't believe how easy it was and just how much better it is than store-bought. It’s so simple and fun to make, a great activity with the kids, and this recipe makes the softest, best play dough ever. And it makes a ton of it — forget those small little containers, I’ll never go store-bought again! We went with pink, red, and purple play dough & heart cookie cutters for a very Valentine’s theme. Hope you and your littles enjoy playing with it as much as we do!
HOMEMADE PLAY DOUGH
1 cup flour
1 tbsp oil (we used avocado oil)
1 cup water (room temp)
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
a few drops of food coloring
Disclaimer: this dough should not be consumed by children or pets.
