Homemade Playdough

I found a new playdough recipe! I love it! I think it’s softer than my other one and the colors mixed better.


2 cup flour
2 cup water
1 cup salt
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp cream of tartar
Food coloring (I used gel)

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add in the wet and mix.

Then divide dough  into however many colors you want (I did 3) and one at a time, cook your ball on the stove,(medium heat) mixing in the color as you go.

Once the dough changes from liquid to a solid and isn’t sticky,  take it out and let it cool on wax paper.
Once it’s cool enough to touch knead it to remove lumps and ensure color is thoroughly incorporated.



Store in an airtight container! (We use sandwhich bags)

Happy crafting 🙂
