Homemade Play Dough

There are several recipes for homemade play dough out there; here's one that I liked. It's a "uncooked" type of play dough which makes it quick and easy.
It comes from Trish Kuffner's The Preschooler's Busy Book.


1 cup cold water
1 cup salt
2 tsp vegetable oil
Tempera paint or food coloring
3 cups flour
2 Tbsp cornstarch
Your toddler will of course be more than willing to help mix the dough with his/her hands.


If your dough starts to get crusty or fall apart, just add more water.
(this is my daughter's snowman)

And this is her castle.

We didn't add any coloring because I didn't have the energy that day to clean up
more than I had to! We'll have to try again with some more flare next time.

Any good play dough recipes?

  1. How fun! Is she eating it in that last picture? 'Cause that's totally what my toddler would do! Come to think of it, that'a what I did at that age!
