I have tried a lot of playdough recipes.
Ones that require you to cook the dough, some with cold water…some with cream of tartar and some with out, but this is the one that I always come back to.
My mom’s recipe
She made it for all our friends as gifts, and we always had a never-ending supply of playdough fun!
1 cup of Flour
1/2 cup salt2 tsp cream of tartar
1 TB oil
1 cup water
In a pot, combine the flour, salt, and cream of tartar.
Add the oil to 1 cup of water. Pour over the flour mixture and over medium heat stir until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the pot.
Turn over onto a floured surface. Once cooled, kneed until smooth.
Store in an airtight container.
When dough begins to dry out, here is how you can reconstitute it to make it last longer!
On a dry surface, turn out old playdough and kneed as well as you can to form one ball.
Add water 1/2 T – 1 T at a time, kneeding the water into the dough after each addition of water. Continue this process until the dough is soft again.
You can watch this video of me showing you how I reconstituted my children’s playdough:
