We didnt have any playdoh currently (we buy it on a very regular basis but it seems we cant keep it moist for very long, as much as we play with it!). So, I had to in search of a super easy recipe that didnt entail cooking (I hate cleaning the pot after making that stuff!) or cream of tarter which we are also out of.
I remembered a video on a friend's blog, Smockity Frocks where she made playdoh using flour, salt, water, oil and food coloring. It was super, super easy. The video was a big help to figuring out how it all comes together, and doing with lots of little hands to help :)
She didnt have a written recipe there so I thought I would supplement as my Tuesday Tip :)
Connies Homemade Playdoh Recipe
3 cups flour and 1/3 cup salt. Mix together, then add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Mix, then set aside. Add to a cup of water, 7+ drops of food coloring (we used like 25 or so ..we like it bright!). Pour the water/food coloring slowly into the flour mixture and keep stirring until you cant stir anymore. Then, drop out dough and knead away until all the flour is added in and the dough is smooth and play ready.
This was super easy, not too messy (we did it at the table) and a big hit in the Steedly house!
Thought I would pass on this great tip ..it worked for us!
