Play- Doh!
Recipe Cook Off
I am very talented at messing up homemade play dough so I never make it. If you have a great recipe leave me a comment and I might consider trying one last time. We had a blast rolling, and making balls and generally just creating today!

Have a fun Free Art Friday .

Playdough Recipes I Love !

My Favorite !

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
3 Tbs. oil
1 Tbs. alum or 3 cream of tartar
2 cups boiling water
food coloring of your (child’s) choice

Mix all ingredients together and you’re done! (You kind of have to be exact in the measurements. If it’s too sticky, I add a little extra oil. If it’s too oily, I add a little extra flour. Too much flour makes it dry out fast.)

Apple Cider Playdough

1 cup apple cider

Pumpkin Pie Play Dough

Ingredients:
5 1/2 cups flour
2 cup salt
8 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 oz pumpkin pie spice (or your own combination of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and mace)
4 cups water
Food coloring (2 parts yellow, 1 part red)

This play dough is not edible, just for playing !!!!!

It smells so good. It is a little oily for me, but it makes for easy clean up.
