Playdough Recipe

Play-Doh is basically nostalgia tucked inside a bright yellow container: the salty smell, primary colours, and endless opportunities. For more than 60 years, parents and kids have turned this moldable dough into handmade creations of all kinds.



  • 1 14 cup white flour

  • 1/4 cup of salt

  • 1/2 Tbsp cream of tartar

  • 1 cup boiling water

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp oil

  • food colouring to colour playdough

Mix flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a medium bowl.

Add boiling water, oil and food colouring.

When mixture forms a ball in the bowl, turn out and knead on a slightly floured surface.

Store in airtight container or plastic bag.


For variety, add Kool-Aid powder to dry ingredients instead of food colouring. It will smell great!
