Gluten Free Playdough Recipe

We love play-dough and if you have made homemade playdough before you probably know that there is flour in it, usually wheat flour which isn’t an issue for most kids but for children who suffer from celiac’s , gluten intolerance or wheat allergies it can turn playtime into not much fun. I searched the web for a recipe a few years back and couldn’t find a thing. Then when I saw Bisquick came out with a gluten free product I bought some to try with my Bisquick playdough recipe.

Here is how I adjusted it for the gluten free product.

1 cups gluten free Bisquick
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1/2 TBSP  alum
1 TBSP oil

Pour everything  into a microwave  safe bowl and microwave for 3 mins stop and scrape and stir. Add another 1/2 – 1 tbsp of oil.

Knead. I let mine cool a while ( it gets HOT) and then my son helps knead.

I love how this playdough turned out so white! We opted to grab some cupcake liners, cookie cutters and add sprinkles (check to see if they are gluten free ) to play pretend Halloween bakery . 

Of course the sprinkles color ran and now we have brown dough but it’s still probably my favorite dough as far as texture goes! I will definitely be making this recipe again.

      I should see if it still works with the gluten free bisquick- I have used them interchangeably with regular flour but never rice flour ( which is what is in the GF). Hmm a task for another day!
