Here is the best playdough recipe! It’s been mom and kid tested and approved by both!
I”m very excited that Olyvia, my daughter, has shown great interest in blogging with me. She’s such a creative young lady and asked if she can come up with more posts in the Activities With Kids Segment. It’s a perfect match for everyone, you should see what she has up her sleeve.
We decided that her theme for awhile is color to go along with the Spin Art Milk I put on last week. We went through some of our crafts and experiments we did as a family when the kids were younger and decided to start with playdough. There are many recipes online, but this one is the one we used more times than I can count. Olyvia wanted to try a recipe for noncooking playdough, but it seemed to dry out somewhat pretty quickly, so she went with our family one.
This recipe is easy and quick. We made 4 different colors tonight each in separate batches. While Olyvia was cooking one batch I mixed the next batch together and we were done in less than 15 minutes. One key thing is to add the food coloring as soon as the dough starts to form because it will get harder to mix. We found that as it cooked and began to take shape it was a little lumpy, in the end I used gloves and just kneaded it together to finish getting the color mixed in and to get the lumps out. You’re going to love this recipe, it’s feels just like playdough you buy in the cans.
We used the food coloring you can find in the stores, but for our next batches we’re ordering my favorite food coloring! You’ll be amazed at how vibrant your colors will be. I’ll be sure to make an updated batch for you when we get them in.
Playdough is inviting for any age. Olyvia and I were packing it up, when Camden came in from outside. He came right over and started rolling it out and making shapes with the cookie cutters.
I found these air tight containers at a yard sale for only $0.5o. Came in handy for our playdough!
And now for our recipe:
