We tried our hand at making homemade playdough this week (after realizing that the store bought stuff had dried out). We tried a few different recipes - both cooked and uncooked - and finally ended up with a version of our own. Here's what we found to work the best:
- 2 cups water
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1 T veg oil
- 1 1/2 T cream of tarter
- 2 packs of KoolAid
The color doesn't show up well in this picture, but the playdough is actually a semi-bright orange. This was all made in one batch - plenty for my 3 oldest to play with together.
To go along with our new playdough I printed some playdough mats and laminated them. I found a great list of printable mats at Planet of the Apels and also at SparkleBox.
The kids have been having a blast with their new playdough and mats! Do you have a favorite playdough recipe? What's your favorite way to play with playdough?
