Afterschool Art Class: Playdough

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last week at the Afterschool Art Program we had a ton of fun making and playing with homemade Play Dough.  The recipe was super simple and didn’t need a stove.  It was a little stinky, so I might suggest using kool-aid powder as your food colouring.  Kept in an air tight container this dough will last a few weeks.  Longer if kept in the fridge.  Have Fun!

Easy Play Dough

  • 1 C White Flour
  • 1/2 C Salt
  • 2 TBLS Cream of Tartar
  • 1 TBLS Cooking Oil
  • Food Color
  • 1 Cup Hot Water
  1. Mix your water and food colour separately.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients and cooking oil until blended.
  3. Add water, mix well.  You may need to add a bit more flour to get a good consistency.  It is very sticky at first but as it cools becomes more workable.
