Homemade Play dough

Fun to make and 100 times better than the store-bought version. Here is my favorite homemade play dough recipe from I Heart Nap Time.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup salt

  • 4 teaspoons cream of tartar

  • 2 cups lukewarm water

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • Food coloring


  1. Stir together the flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a large pot. Then add the water, oil, and food coloring.

  2. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the dough has thickened and starts to turn into a ball. Remove from heat and transfer to a cutting board covered with wax paper or a glass bowl.

  3. Allow to cool slightly and then knead until smooth.

  4. Store the play dough in resealable bags to keep it soft.
