Home-made Playdough

For Design and technology, our kids made a HOMEMADE PLAYDOUGH.  They love it.  I love it as well! It brings out the child in me. LOL.

This playdough is safe because it is toxic free.  It is made from ingredients we usually used for cooking and baking.  One of my students even tasted the  mixture while stirring it.

This is a good stuff for our kids specially the kinaesthetic ones.  This will also enhance their imagination, improve their motor skills and knowledge in craft.




1 cup of all-purpose flour

1 cup of water

1/2 cup of salt

1 tablespoon oil

2 tablespoons of cream of tartar

1/4 teaspoon food coloring



1.  Measure all ingredients.

2.  Pour all the ingredients in one bowl.

3.  Stir until the mixture has a fine texture.

4. Cook it over a moderate heat for 2 to 4 minutes.

5. Put the playdough on a table or bowl dried and coated with flour.

6. Let it cool down.

7. Time to play dough!


Go try this! It’s easy.  Your going to love it.

  3. Hi Mitch! I also have a homemade play dough recipe on my blog. It is quite fun to make. I think I enjoyed the process more than my little kid did. Activities like these give us an excuse to be kids again.

  4. I remember making home made play dough when I was in fourth grade. I was frustrated, because mine ended up runny! I guess I put too much water in the mixture :). Yes, that’s an excellent activity for kids.
