I would like to post a play dough recipe on my google classroom page for the last week of school. Do you have a favorite? Would you please share. Thank you!

My mom’s play dough recipe from when I was a kid:

1/2 cup salt
1 1/2 cups flour
2 T. Oil
1 tsp. Cream of tartar
1 cup water (can add food coloring if desired)

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the wet. Heat on low, stirring constantly. Knead on waxed paper.

I made it when my son was little, and was worried because the notes didn’t say how long to cook it, but I could tell immediately when it was done by the scent and consistency.


It really does make a lovely dough, but people might not have cream of tartar around, or be willing to make a cooked version with their little ones, so here are a couple more options from “Glues, Brews, and Goos” by Diana Marks:


Flour Clay -

4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 cup salt

Mix and refrigerate for 30 minutes before using. (Can dry relatively thin projects at 300 degrees for one hour.)


Glue Shampoo Dough -

1/2 cup white glue
1/3 cup shampoo
1 1/2 cups flour

Just combine and knead. (This one recommends air drying for a couple of days, and says it can be painted after.)


I haven’t tested either of those myself, though.

You can also use kool aid for color and scent. Lemonade kool doesn’t have a color.

I've done Kool-aid Playdoh before. I don't know the recipe off hand, but I'm sure if you searched for "Kool-aid" play dough, you'd find it.

Lakeside's first recipe is the one we always use. It has a great consistency and if you refrigerate it, it lasts for a really long time.
